repair of the world
Refers to 'repairing the world' through mitzvah -- a noble concept but ignores the fact we need Messiah to return to set things right -- repairing the world isn't man's 'do it yourself' project.
Lit., repairing the world. According to Jewish mysticism, the world is in a broken state. Our job is to join God, as God's partners, in its repair, through acts of goodness.
