Social Justice

"As Jews, we know only too well the experience of being brutalized, branded, and murdered because we are deemed to be a lesser form of life. So let us be the first and the strongest in affirming the nishmat chayim (breath of life) in every human being, and join vigorously in the call for justice for people of color in America by saying 'I can't breathe unless we learn to let everyone breathe.'"

-Rabbi Dena Feingold
