Trump cites “Tikkun Olam” in his proclamation declaring May 2017 as Jewish American Heritage Month
Like his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, president Donald J Trump has proclaimed the month of May as Jewish American Heritage Month. Notice in the first paragraph the citing of the concept of “tikkun olam” from the Lurianic Kabbalah. This “tikkun olam” is a repairing of the imperfect world which was created by God. What are the imperfections in the world? “Tikkun Olam” is a tribal concept and not a universal one. For by repairing the world, what is meant is exterminating from the world Amalek or the enemies of the Jews. What an ethical and moral code! An example of the Lurianic Kabbalah’s “tikkun olam” is pornography — used to destroy the morals and corrupt the youth of those perceived as the enemy.
