Programs .. Tzedek-Social Action

Tzedek Hillel

Tzedek Hillel continues to be one of Hillel’s most popular tools for engagement as it seeks to pursue justice and transform communities. Framed by the Jewish imperatives of tzedakah (righteousness), gemilut chasadim (acts of loving kindness), and tikkun olam (repair of the world), the Tzedek Hillel program engages and empowers students in meaningful public service and encourages creative thinking when addressing social justice issues. In the process of bringing about meaningful social change, participants grow intellectually and spiritually.
