Social justice is a defining element of Liberal Judaism’s ideology.
Our belief in tikkun olam (repairing the world) affects us in everything we do – how we interact with the world and each other. Our responses to local and global issues, and the actions we take, are guided by our commitment to tikkun olam.
Liberal Judaism teaches that we should not only learn but also do; we should go out and actively seek to make the world a better place. We are guided by the idea that: “You are not required to complete the work, yet you are not allowed to desist from it” (Pirkei Avot, 2:21).
The stories featured above are an example of the social justice projects and actions that our movement and communities are / have been a part of.
