Tikkun Olam

The term “mipnei tikkun ha-olam”
is used in the Mishnah (2nd century CE) and it refers to the public social legislation that protected the people who were potentially at a disadvantage, as well as to the concept of keeping the established order.


Tikkun Olam has evolved to encompass the conviction that being Jew means worrying about the world around us. And being a Progressive Jew means hearing the voice of the Prophets in our heads and taking action, not remaining insensitive to social injustice or the damage of human dignity; being committed to Tikkun Olam means trying to improve the world where we live.

Tikkun Olam develops the God’s original pact with the Jewish people in Mount Sinai adding a spiritual dimension to our moral and ethical responsibilities. 

We put into practice our moral and ethical values, so that our best contribution to Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) is through acts of kindness, social justice, love for one’s neighbour, and taking care of God’s creation.

Bet Shalom offers a range of individual and communitarian opportunities to practice Tikkun Olam through the Mitzvah of tzedakah, acts of guemilut hasadim and the promotion of social justice. 

Our education programs and our tefilah tend to explore the relationship between the Jewish ethical and religious values and the present social reality.
