For Judaism, ours is an unredeemed, pre-messianic world. This chapter focuses upon how hope, faith, and sacred deeds offer human beings an opportunity and a challenge to help move the world toward messianic redemption. Various views of the human role in the messianic process, including the kabbalistic notion of tikkun — “repair,” are examined, as are various forms of redemption such as individual, collective, and cosmic redemption. Further ideas of Jewish eschatology, such as the afterlife, are also presented.

Keywords:   messianic redemption, Tikkun, eschatology, afterlife, hope
