Tikkun Olam is a concept in Judaism that means "repair of the world" and urges everyone to act in a benign and charitable fashion.
For five years Moti Kahana has been practicing Tikkun Olam in Syria, providing humanitarian aid to Syrian war refugees, rescuing the remaining Jews, and saving valuable religious artifacts of Jewish life.
Moti has invested millions of dollars and has put everything on the line to reach out to those in Syria and beyond who can provide aid in different forms to desperate people. Using humanitarian diplomacy, he has connected with many important players in the regional conflict, encouraging collaboration and peace.
Moti's exploits have been publicized in the media across the world and include The Times of Israel, The Jewish Chronicle, NPR, YNet News, Haaretz, The Jerusalem Post, Tablet magazine, The Washington Beacon, and many others.
Now you have a chance to join with Moti and his team to make a real difference in the lives of Syrian war refugees and others who have ben impacted by a brutal civil war.

There is an immediate need for a safe zone in Southern Syria, where civil society can be restored. This is possible because there is a UN presence and Israelis just across the border at the Golan Heights who are ready and willing to help. We will use humanitarian diplomacy with our contacts in the region and elsewhere to try to return at least this part of Syria to a more civilized existence.
