The fourth lecture in our [email protected] series takes place on Tuesday, May 5 from 7:30 - 8:30 pm EST.  Gratz College faculty member, Dr. Ruth Sandberg discusses “Jewish Social Justice.”

We tend to think of "social justice" as a modern concept, based on the tragic experiences of the 20th and 21th centuries and the need to repair a badly broken world. In this Zoom session, we will discover that the concept of Jewish social justice actually has very ancient roots in the Bible and in the thinking of the ancient Rabbis, and that ancient Jewish tradition insists on the alleviation of poverty, lessening the suffering of the vulnerable, establishing an equitable and fair justice system, and fostering greater human understanding. Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced Hebrew language student, this one-hour session will be a fun way to learn or refresh basic conversational skills.
