Tikkun Olam is not in the Torah.
"Now, the actual phrase “tikkun olam” goes back many centuries –
although it’s not used even once in the Hebrew Bible. It appears most
prominently in an important prayer (the Aleinu) and in Kabbalah – Jewish mysticism. But the term never referred to a broad program of social change until very, very recently."
"In the last half-century, though, tikkun olam has become the
catchall phrase for advocacy of goals that are nearly all
left-of-center: environmental activism, feminism, nuclear disarmament,
universal health care, gay marriage, urban renewal, reproductive rights
for women, and more.
And make no mistake: tikkun olam as it’s used today grew out
of recent liberal American politics, and is not a value uniting the
Jewish community across space and time."
