justice

The questions of ethical living today...

...are answered with clarity in Jewish sacred texts. We ought to:

treat one another as being created in the image of God,

not stand idly by the blood of our brother,

recognize that we were once strangers and immigrants,

work for redemption, 

pursue justice,

have faith and cultivate hope,

take time for self-reflection and make amends, 

establish a fair justice system,

lift up gratitude,

care for the stranger the widow and orphan,

listen intently,

respond to others' needs with active presence, 

act justly, love mercy and love humbly.

These values guide our actions.
