One of the key foundations of Judaism is the concept of Tikkun Olam, or, ‘repairing the world,’ and that’s something that resonates deeply with me. For that reason, I have been involved with volunteer activities in various organizations for a very long time. I would like to believe that in some way my work with Ronald McDonald House, my synagogue’s Social Action Committee, and the John Brown House Museum, have made a difference and touched people’s lives in a tangible way. I also love the contact I’ve had with students over the years, in my daily work as a librarian at RISD. If as librarians we can inspire students with our collections and help instill lifelong learning skills in research and critical thinking, I would consider that a wonderful legacy.
