Intro to Jewish Social Justice
Rabbi Seth Goren
What is "Jewish Social Justice"? What does it mean to repair the world as Jews? This 4-session course, created by Repair the World, will explore a range of tensions: What is the relationship between learning and action? Should we preference immediate needs or long-term impact? How can we prioritize among the variety of inequalities? Is our primary responsibility to our own community or the broader world? Does your desire for justice come from your relationship to Judaism or somewhere else? Through traditional and modern sources, we'll seek to understand what Jewish social justice is, and how it can guide our efforts to improve the world.
This course was made in partnership between Project Zug and Repair the World. To learn about Repair the World check out: www.werepair.org
