“For You Were Strangers”

The core narrative of the Jewish people revolves around the experience of slavery and liberation. Far from being just a story for the history books, this memory generates radical laws about how to relate to the most vulnerable in our societies.

Rabbi Jill Jacobs, the Executive Director of Rabbis for Human Rights-North America, is widely regarded as a leading voice on Jewish social justice. Her books include Where Justice Dwells: A Hands-On Guide to Doing Social Justice in Your Jewish Community.
