Rabbi Will Berkovitz, 1991 alumunus of the University of St. Thomas and now vice president of partnerships and rabbi-in-residence at a national Jewish service organization called Repair the World, explored how we may respond to the traditional Jewish mandate to assist God in sustaining and repairing the world, which, he said, "has taken on a new meaning and urgency in our age of widespread environmental degradation and untold human suffering."
