Title: O Tikkun Olam. Môj pohľad na...
Author: Jevgenij Iršai

Abstract: Around Tikkun Olam. My view of...
lam (orig. Hebrew: “repair of the world”) is a concept in Judaism, which refers to various forms of action intended to repair or improve the world. In classic al rabbinic literature, this phrase referred to legal enactments created to maintain order in society. In modern era, namely in post-Haskalah movements, Tikkun Olam has come to refer to the pursuit of social justice or “the establishment of Godly qualities throughout the world”, etc.
In my text I am writing about the works of past few years in which I have been more and more focused on philosophical and religious texts. The most prominent composition is undoubtedly the monumental Requiem for a Poet, with a subtitle “At the End of Civilisation” for bass-baritone, soprano, mixed choir and symphonic orchestra. This piece was based on a Latin canonical text and the poems of six exceptional poets from various periods, in original.
