Tikkun Olam: Repairing the World
Jews for Jesus
Tikkun olam has become a favorite Hebrew catch phrase to describe social activism, opposition to injustice, and efforts to improve society and repair the world. Non-Jews have also appropriated the term: The meaning of the phrase went through four iterations. It began as a verb meaning “to make straight” in the Hebrew Scriptures. Rabbis used the term in legal discussion in the Talmud. In the Middle Ages it was used to describe a Kabbalistic concept of cosmic repair. Finally, American Jewry appropriated the term in the mid-twentieth century to describe modern social activism.
