Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam is one of the key elements of the Jewish tradition and the Shmita year. Through core values such as; Equality, Care for the other and Chesed we are able to not only fulfill the Mitzvah of Shmita but also be able to do good and help repair the world.

Imagine

John Lennon

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

And the world will be as one

 

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people

Sharing all the world...

Imagine & Shmita....

Both concepts try to give us a utopian outlook on reality, however are there some aspects from these concepts that we can implement in reality? We think that we can through acts of Chesed and Tikkun Olam. See an example below:
