Judaism and Justice: The Jewish Passion to Repair the World

by Sidney Schwarz, Rabbi, Ruth Messinger

Why is it that Jews are so involved in causes dedicated to justice, equality, human rights and peace? Are these trends influenced by religion, history, sociology or something else? This groundbreaking volume sheds light on the relationship between Judaism, social justice and the Jewish identity of American Jews. It traces how the idea of justice, as developed in the sacred texts of Judaism, conditions Jewish attitudes and behavior. In a fascinating portrayal of some of the major issues facing the Jewish community in the last fifty years, it explores a community torn between its instincts for self-preservation and its desire to serve as an ethical light to the nations.
