What is Tikkun?
Tikkun is Hebrew for “repair” and holds within it healing, bringing wholeness to ourselves, others, and the world.
Tikkun Olam—Hebrew for “world repair”—has come to connote social action and the pursuit of social justice. The phrase has origins in classical rabbinic literature and in Lurianic kabbalah, where it is the human ability to repair the shattered vessels from the Creation of the world.
The Nefesh community participates in repairing the world in a number of different ways both as a community and as individuals. Our Tikkun Collective coordinates these efforts in these areas.
- Immigration reform
- Incarceration justice
- Support of children in the LA county foster care / adoption systems
As a new community, we are still developing our social justice work and responding to the present moment as it unfolds. If you’re interested in connecting in these or other realms, we warmly welcome you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
