The concept of tikun olam—repair the world—expresses the value of volunteering in Judaism. The world may be imperfect, but we have not only the opportunity, but really the obligation to help make it better, more whole. In fact, the world really depends on people being active not only in their own lives, but in their community’s destiny, too.
