Tikkun Olam: How Faith Informs Social Justice
March 11, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm CDT
The hebrew phrase Tikkun Olam is from the Mishnah, a body of classical rabbinic teachings compiled in the 3rd Century and 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 social justice. Three dynamic speakers explore the impact of their faith (Judaism, Muslim, Christian) informs their work for social justice and their fight for human rights.
