In Judaism we share the value of tikkun olam, repairing the world. In one of the country’s most segregated cities, we are bringing young people together across lines of division to repair the world-- together.

Repairing Together is a program of the Milwaukee Jewish Day School (MJDS) started in August of 2016 that connects students from different cultural backgrounds in K-8 schools in the Milwaukee area through thematic social and environmental action programming. We partner with local schools to share and celebrate the cultural, racial and social diversity in our communities and to take action together for a better world.

We envision a journey for all students who participate in the Repairing Together program, beginning in kindergarten and growing through the years together with partner peers until they finish eighth grade. Students create lifelong relationships, challenge stereotypes, take action together, and develop a solid framework for empathetic leadership in today’s world.

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, what am I? If not now, when?"
Rabbi Hillel
