A central prinicipal in Jewish life is Tikun Olam.
Tikkun Olam is a Hebrew phrase that means “repairing the world” or “perfecting the world”. In Judaism, the concept of tikkun olam originated in the early rabbinic period. The concept was given new meanings in the Kabbalah of the medieval period and further connotations in modern Judaism (wikipedia.org).
The phrase tikkun olam was first used to refer to social action work in the 1950s. In subsequent decades, many other organizations and thinkers have used the term to refer to social programs; tzedakah (charitable giving) and gemilut hasadim, (acts of kindness); and progressive Jewish approaches to social issues.
