Pursuing Justice

As members of local and global Jewish communities, we bear responsibility for pursuing justice and equality for all the citizens of the world. We can all give tzedakah and a little time, while some of us have the capacity to do much more. We make the world better when we fight for justice from a place of humility and love. These rituals and prayers infuse that work with a sense of holiness and perspective to help us do just that.
