Being in the Business of Tikkun Olam

What can “people, profits, and planet” teach us about Tikkun Olam (repair the world)? Anita Zucker explores how approaching the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam through a business model of the “Three P’s” (people, profits, and planet) helps us integrate Tikkun Olam into every day life. When we integrate Tikkun Olam as an every day practice into our work, family and communities, we change people’s lives for the better.
