From Amos to Heschel and Beyond:
A Personal Reflection on Social Justice as an Inherent Part of Judaism Past, Present and Future
As a Jew in America over the last 75 years, Ruth Messinger will reflect on her personal experience with and understanding of what she calls social justice Judaism. Where in our texts do we find stories about justice and exhortations to be just? What is meant by social justice in this context and how has it been differently interpreted throughout the Torah and throughout our history? This lecture and the article to come do not claim to be the definitive treatment of this issue, but rather to constitute one woman’s journey, summarizing at least some of what she has learned and done and what she thinks needs to be done now.
