The Mizel Museum’s events for Denver area students are engaging and meaningful. Programs are based on the theme that lies at the heart of our permanent exhibit 4,000 Year Road Trip: Gathering Sparks—tikkun olam. “Gathering sparks” is often understood to be the origin of tikkun olam, which is Hebrew for “healing the world.” By promoting civic engagement in fun and creative ways, we hope to inspire students to live and grow in the spirit of tikkun olam.
