Painting of Cotel In Israel


Framed by the Jewish imperatives of tzedakah (justice), gemilut chasadim (acts of loving kindness), and tikkun olam (repair of the world), the MIT Tzedek Initiative organizes students to engage in meaningful public service around social justice issues.

"You are not required to complete the work, yet you are not allowed to desist from it."
-Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) 2:2

Alternative Spring Break Trips

MIT Hillel has sponsored opportunities for MIT students to spend their Spring Break engaged in tikkun olam (healing the world) The trips are a combination of work projects to help the local community combined with reflection and lessons based on Jewish learning, as well as Shabbat celebrations.
