Dear Friends,

Today’s summary post is especially gratifying because our Tikkun Olam recipients (#28, 29, 30) are prominent voices of justice fighting against injustices. They are remarkable leaders, on the front lines and in the trenches committed to insuring protection, safety, security and survival. The issues they deal with demonstrate the highest values of Tikkun Olam, repairing and reordering the world.
