Healing the world – Making the world a better place, one of the key moral principles
Engineers set about healing the world because it had a big tear in it and they wanted to make it a better place.
Repairing and healing the world is seen by many Jews as their primary duty.
Tikkun olam (which means 'mend the world') is a concept which goes to the heart of some forms of Judaism.
Many Jews help to heal the world by contributing to social justice and some volunteer for charities. Others believe that people should act in a morally good way so as to improve life on Earth, which includes obeying God's laws.
Jews aim to show kindness to others as the Torah teaches that people should love others in the same way that they love themselves.
