Yishuv, Kiyum v'Tikkun haOlam -- these terms, the Inhabiting, Sustaining and Ordering (you've more often seen the translation Repairing) of the world -- are the primary terms with which the rabbinic tradition over the years has referred to a full complement of behaviors that define the right functioning of human civilization in the world that God created. The third of them has, of course, become central to the modern Jewish community's sense of itself and its mission. We will be looking at texts (across rabbinic literature, both in genre and in time) which explore these concepts and their ramification, with a focus on the former, less well known, ones that address, in part, the relationship of human civilization to the natural environment.
