Tikkun Olam: Acts of kindness performed to perfect or repair the world; making the world a better place.
It’s a traditional Jewish concept taken very literally by many Israelis! Israel is known as the “innovation nation,” and they didn’t come by it accidentally. Since before the re-birth of Israel, the Jews have had to figure out how to make things work for the good of many…or risk the disappearance of and entire people group! They had to work hard simply to exist.
Today, Israel is full of ideas that impact the world. A couple days ago, one such Israeli innovator was featured during ICEJ’s Feast of Tabernacles celebration. Her name is Sivan Yaari and she is founder and CEO of Innovation Africa. They bring technology to Africa that helps villages overcome the terrible effects of drought, famine and extreme living conditions.
It is an incredible gift to the African people and well worth discovering. Take a look:
PS: We’ll look at other Israeli innovations tomorrow during a teaching called “We Stand with Israel.” Come join us at Calvary Community Church NW campus (Prayer Room) at 9:00 or Central campus (Room 403) at 11:00. Info and directions.
