Social Justice: The Heart of Judaism in Theory and Practice
Presented by Rabbis Gary Pokras, Adam Raskin, Michael Safra, Baht Weiss
This new Melton Scholars course draws from text and history to explore how social justice work goes beyond addressing short-term needs and looks at structural causes of injustice today. Topics include issues related to poverty, immigration, and environmental degradation. Participants will be encouraged to identify issues that are particular to their own communities and that they would like to explore in greater depth.
