The haftarah from Isaiah on Yom Kippur morning teaches us to “untie the cords of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free.” Parshat Shoftim says “Justice, justice shall you pursue.” How do we as Jews relate to our neighbors who live with the legacy of discrimination in housing, employment, education and criminal justice? We are building on the legacy of the Tikkun Olam Advocacy committee, led originally by Bob Katzoff, and on conversations among a small group of our members over the past year, with a focus on social justice issues in Baltimore and on what our tradition teaches us about how we view these issues through a Jewish lens. Join us for an organizing meeting to discuss opportunities for our members to study and to advocate on behalf of social justice.
