The Tikkun Project curriculum blends critical thinking, Jewish values and hands-on action to promote students’ sense of agency and ability to tackle real-world problems like poverty, climate change and inequality. Since we launched the Tikkun Project in 2017, it has become a core element in teaching and learning.
The literal translation of Tikkun is to “fix” or “repair”, often seen in the context of repairing the world. We broaden this intent by looking inward to make personal improvements, in addition to looking at how we support our community.
The program supports the development of critical thinking skills that will help students navigate complex social challenges with knowledge and empathy.
