British Jewish charity maven Jude Williams believes that tikkun olam (repairing the world) is imperative for all Jews. She takes time out from the Israeli Presidential Conference to tell The Jerusalem Post how she has brought her vision to the local Jewish community via the Tzedek NGO which she heads. Tzedek runs UK-based educational programs about poverty, forges relationships between Jewish British children with children in the developing world, sends volunteers to Ghana and runs development projects in developing countries.
How did you become involved in Tzedek?
