Finally, I’m on summer vacation and turning my attention back to my passion of creating this website! It seemed appropriate to start with a Tikkun Olam post, which you will find in the Gateway of the Sea, about the plight of today’s refugees at Sea and some groups that we can support to help them.

Tikkun Olam: “Repairing the World.” This term has a long history in rabbinic and mystical thought. Today it is often used to mean Social Action, making the world better. It is said that Tikkun Olam, repairing the world, starts with Tikkun HaLev, repairing the heart. (From our page on Sacred Words.)
