The traditional Jewish mandate to assist God in sustaining and repairing the world has taken on new meaning and urgency in our age of widespread environmental degradation and untold human suffering.

On October 19, 2010, Repair the World’s Rabbi-in-Residence, Rabbi Will Berkovitz, addressed students at University of St. Thomas, St. Paul Campus. Drawing on classical and contemporary sources, Rabbi Berkovitz explored how we may respond to this mandate through the cultivation of life-affirming spirituality and civic engagement.
