The passion for social justice is reflected in the ancient words of our prophets and sages and in the declarations of Reform Judaism's leaders throughout history. This mini-course offers participants an opportunity to explore the Jewish roots of social justice work, and to ask key questions that will help guide and enrich their efforts to repair the world. In addition to asking “What is Jewish about social justice,” we'll explore such questions as: “How do I balance my obligation to the Jewish community with my obligations to others?” and “How can we enact these values in 2021?” The course is grounded in traditional and contemporary Jewish texts, in addition to the sacred voices and experiences that you will bring to our discussions.
