There Shall Be No Needy : Pursuing Social Justice Through Jewish Law and Tradition Paperback / softback
What do Jewish texts and traditions have to say to our contemporary society in crisis?
This fascinating treatise confronts the most pressing issues of twenty-first-century society - including health care, criminal justice, work and the environment - by bringing classical Jewish sources into striking dialogue with contemporary policy debates and the real-life stories of working people.
The results are often unexpected. Written by one of the leading young voices in the arena of social justice, it presents a template for engagement in public life from a Jewish perspective and challenges us to renew our obligations to each other. This invigorating look at religion and public policy will appeal to Jews seeking to understand contemporary issues through a Jewish lens; to social change agents asking how to connect their work and ideals with their Jewish heritage; and to anyone interested in the vital question of what religion can and should mean in the world today.
