Can the teachings of Judaism provide a sacred framework for
repairing the world? In this groundbreaking volume, leading rabbis,
intellectuals, and activists explore the relationship between
Judaism and social justice, drawing on ancient and modern sources
of wisdom. The contributors argue that American Jewry must move
beyond "mitzvah days" and other occasional service programs, and
dedicate itself to systemic change in the United States, Israel,
and throughout the world. These provocative essays concentrate on
specific justice issues such as eradicating war, global warming,
health care, gay rights and domestic violence, offering practical
ways to transform theory into practice, and ideas into advocacy.
Rich and passionate, these expressions will inspire you to consider
your obligations as a Jew, as an American and as a global citizen,
while challenging you to take thoughtful and effective action in
the world. Contributors: Martha Ackelsberg, PhD Rabbi Rebecca
