Jewish Literary Voices: A Federation Series in collaboration with the Jewish Book Council

Join in a virtual interactive community study led by Rabbi Barry Block, editor of The Social Justice Torah Commentary, in conversation with local Berkshire Rabbis on the timely question: What does the Torah have to say about social justice? 

As the contributors to The Social Justice Torah Commentary demonstrate, a great deal. A diverse array of authors delve deeply into each week's parashah, drawing lessons to inspire tikkun olam. Chapters address key contemporary issues such as racism, climate change, mass incarceration, immigration, disability, women's rights, voting rights, and many more. The result is an indispensable resource for weekly Torah study and for anyone committed to repairing the world.

Purchase the book here and a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the local bookstore in Great Barrington.
