So many liberal jews love the term 'Tikkun Olam', as well as do some judaized goyim like Barack Obama who said in front of AIPAC that Tikkun Olam has been the guiding force in his life (link below). Where does the term come from, and what did ('does
) it mean? I recently found this paper by a kike named Byron L. Sherwin who says the following:
<Today, tikkun olam is usually translated as "to repair the world," "tikkun" being translated as "repair" or "fix," "olam" being translated as "world." However, tikkun ha-olam is the term used throughout classical Hebrew literature. [...]
<In classical Hebrew and Aramaic texts, the range of meanings of the word "and of various declensions of its verbal root T-K-N, include: repair, establish, institute, edit, restore, prepare, legislate, improve, perfect, remedy.Though often denotes "the world," which seems to reflect the universalistic meaning denoted today by tikkun olam, it is clearly not the meaning of "olam" in the "tikkun ha-olam" in most classical Hebrew sources, beginning with Tannaitic literature.
For example, after reviewing all Talmudic occurrences of the "tikkun ha-olam," Reform leader and social activist Eugene J. Lipman concluded that "none of the material adduced here could serve to bring me to the conclusion that the Talmudic sages were speaking of all humanity... [the referent here relates only to] the jewish community
<...the term "tikkun ha-olam" was expanded to include various other types of halakhic legislation which establish conditions aimed at supporting and sustaining various types of jewish communal and individual needs. This observation correlates with Lipmans conclusion that "in the Talmud, Tikkun Olam means 'for the proper order of the jewish community,'" rather than as contemporary views depict it: "to build a better world.
And there we have it. "Olam" (world) in Talmudic sources referred exclusively to the well-being of the jewish community. The jewish author of this paper claims that there has been a case of semantic displacement in the use of the term, but anyone who is aware of the goals of this tribe sees that the actions taken today by the ZOGs of the world and their minions are almost exclusively in the benefit of the jewish community. These liberal, less outwardly religious jews are still following Tikkun Olam in their pursuit of a world shaped in the image of the jewish community and their ultimate benefit. The paper drops one more unintentional redpill on the nature of American jews in particular:
<The influx of Eastern European jews to America around the turn of the twentieth century, introduced Commieic and socialistic ideas that were also identified with the universalistic, cosmopolitan ideas of Prophetic Judaism. [...] sociological studies confirmed that most "American jews had been raised with the understanding that liberalism or political radicalism constituted the very essence of Judaism
, that all the rest - the rituals, liturgy, communal organizations - were outdated, vestigial trappings for a religion with a great moral message embodied in liberalism. "According to an astute observer of American jewry, for American jews, "politics is our religion; our preferred denomination is liberalism." A slogan of this secularist approach is: tikkun olam.https://invidio.us/watch?v=8bAevuoRj34https://sci-hub.tw/https://www.jstor.org/stable/43150878
