The Project which focuses on Jews who found refuge in Haiti during the Holocaust, was founded by Harriet and Bill Mohr to preserve survivors’ memories and promote scholarship on their experiences. Tikkun Olam is a fundamental Jewish principle and lived value, meaning "repairing the world." The "Tikkun Olam Award" was established shortly after the Haiti earthquake in 2010 with the goal of recognizing individuals and organizations who are working in the areas of remembrance of WWII, revealing Haiti’s role in saving Jewish refugees’ lives during the Shoah and building bridges to new understanding of the current connection between the Jewish and Haitian people. Soon, the scope of the award was expanded to include individuals who have made a significant impact in repairing the world.


Previous recipients of the Tikkun Olam Award include Daniel Pearl and the Daniel Pearl Foundation; the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Yad Vashem, Andrew Nagorski; the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum; and U.S. Congressman and Holocaust survivor Tom Lantos.
