Watch this moving video about 120 people who gathered in Nazareth for 72 hours to design, develop and innovate solutions for people with special needs. The name of the event, TOM (Tikkun Olam Makeathon) is derived from the Hebrew phrase Tikkun Olam, which means fixing the world.

The aptly named event did not disappoint. High expectations were met with high levels of enthusiasm and results, as the video shows. The 72 hour rush to create and make things that help those in need was a shining example of human ingenuity and the willingness to do good. Hopefully we will be able to visit them again in a year’s time.
