Tikkun note that their "goal is to build a community of people who share a common intellectual/spiritual perspective—an intellectual/spiritual cadre of activist social healers--even as they retain their own particular religious and spiritual practices. We will work together to bring a progressive spiritual politics into the various arenas in which we work. For example, we will bring our perspective into existing social change movements in the hopes of strengthening them and making them more successful. Our task is to support each other as we bring ideas into the public sphere that are often dismissed as "too idealistic" or "too spiritual"—and to help each other sustain a commitment to a transformative agenda against all the pressures to be "more realistic" and settle for much less than we actually believe in.

"In this work, we see ourselves as fundamentally connected to the thinking being done in TIKKUN magazine. We connect with all who hope for a real TIKKUN (the Hebrew word for healing, repair and transformation).

"The TIKKUN Community will not be a traditional organization—certainly not an organization that would compete with or take resources away from other social action groups." [1]
