Susan Lubeck On Economic Justice The Jewish Angle: Addressing the Crisis of Inequality

Temple Sinai's Albers Chapel
2808 Summit Street
94609 Oakland, CA

Join Susan as she discusses economic justice from a Jewish perspective as part of larger learning series at Temple Sinai, “Exploring the World of Judaism”.  Rising inequality has reached alarming proportions, and we can feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem and the challenges of engaging effectively in our political system. What does our tradition have to teach about economic justice and public engagement? Reflect on the meaning of economic justice as informed by Jewish thought, and learn about current efforts to fight inequality, including the role of Jews in this work.
