Tech-un Olam is an initiative of Rabbi Dr. Baruch HaLevi, co-founder and CEO of welaunch, a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) social enterprise that connects Israeli innovation and tech companies to the U.S. market.
Tikun Olam literally means “repairing the world” and expresses the spirit and mission of the Jewish people. “Tech-un Olam” is a term coined to describe the essence of this ancient idea and imperative of this eternal calling, applying it to our world and within our lives, in modern and impactful ways.
Tech-un Olam focuses upon entrepreneurism, innovation and technology, exploring them through ancient religious texts, wisdom traditions and spiritual practices. Although it is primarily Jewish, it is by no means exclusively Jewish. Rabbi B draws insights and inspiration from many traditions such as Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism. Tech-un Olam is for anyone interested in exploring the Spirit of entrepreneurism, the ancient roots of innovation and the modern applications of Global Impact Technologies as a pathway to improve ourselves and repair the world.
Through Tech-un Olam there will be Tikun Olam.
