Tikkun Olam: How Faith Informs Social Justice

Recording: Tikkun Olam: How Faith Informs Social Justice, Mar 11, 2019

The Hebrew phrase Tikkun Olam translates roughly to “world repair”. It is a concept defined by acts of kindness performed to perfect or repair the world and in modern times, it has become synonymous with the notion of social action and the pursuit of justice. Four dynamic speakers explore the impact of their faith (Judaism, Buddhist, Muslim, Christian) on their work for social justice and their fight for human rights.
