Welcome to SocialAction.com!
“Today, more than ever, religions are challenged to bring the wisdom of their respective traditions to bear on the moral crises besetting the human community”
—Rabbi Sid Schwarz, Judaism and Justice
In this thought-provoking issue of SocialAction.com, we explore—from a Jewish point of view—some of these moral crises, including demanding decent pay and conditions for workers (in honor of Labor Day), urging senators to vote for divestment and accountability in Darfur, supporting marriage equality rights and justice for gay families, denouncing British labor unions that have called for a boycott against Israel ( “Their resolutions have no purpose other than demonizing Israel,” asserted Stuart Appelbaum, president of the Jewish Labor Committee), and much more. Make Yourself Heard. Act Now, with Wisdom and Compassion!
