Throughout my years at King David I have learned numerous valuable life lessons that have shaped my understanding of the world. One lesson that has resonated deeply with me is the concept of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world). Tikkun Olam represents the Jewish belief that individuals have a responsibility to actively work towards making the world a better place, both socially and environmentally. Through my Jewish education and experiences, I have come to realize the immense value of Tikkun Olam and the impact it can have on our lives and the lives of others. It has taught me that our purpose in life extends beyond personal achievements and success. We have a collective responsibility to contribute positively to society, to alleviate suffering, and to bring about positive change in the world.
It would be impossible to overstate what I have learned about my Jewish identity but also simply how to be a kind person. King David also means so much to me because of the social, kind and trusting environment that has been created that is unlike anywhere else. A particularly good example of this is personal property. Everyone knows that you can leave your phone or computer anywhere in the school for the entire day and when you come back it will still be there.This environment of trust is emblematic of everything that King David stands for and growing up in a value driven school has meant so much to me.
