Tikkun Olam: Charting Your Course

Students explore the concept of Tikkun Olam in relation to Hurricane Katrina and efforts to help others. They read documents related to the Jewish response to Hurricane Katrina and discuss ways they can help rebuild. Working in small groups, they compare the story of Hayley Fields and her quest to buy a new Torah to the obligation of the Jewish tradition to help others.
