Jewish moms - would this be cultural appropriation?

Though I'm an atheist and a gentile, I really like the concept of Tikkun Olam. I've found a lovely pendant with a tree, and Tikkun Olam written in Hebrew. Would it be wrong of me to wear it?

  • I personally don't think there's anything wrong with it.

  • Forgot to add... It is a beautiful concept in Judaism, but I think it can apply to all.

  • I can't think of a reason in the world why it would be a cultural faux pas.
    You may get some people who may think you're Jewish, but that's the worse of it.
    Enjoy the pendant and wear it in good health!
