With Michael Gottsegen

This course will offer a Jewish framework and language for social justice in our times. Each month we will:

  1. explore a pressing social justice topic in its national and global context;

2. consider different ways of approaching the issue through Jewish political principles, concepts, and social values; and

3. examine the politics around the issue and how we might become involved. Topics will include: economic justice in an era of capitalism; and class, race, and gender justice.
