Racial Justice and Jewish Values

By :  Gordon Tucker Vice Chancellor for Religious Life and Engagement Posted On May 2, 2021

Seventh Annual JTS Evening of Learning

Last summer’s widespread demonstrations responding to police violence against people of color reminded us that there is much work to be done in our country toward creating a just society. JTS scholars explore how Jewish texts and tradition enrich our understanding of and response to racial injustice.
