What Jewish Texts Teach Us About Our Obligations to the Most Vulnerable

Wednesday, September 21, 2022, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EDT

Judaism’s texts offer significant wisdom about economic cycles, the causes of inequality, and our obligations to each other. A key component of the shmita year, which we are concluding, is to serve the needs of those in poverty.

Join the National Affinity Group on Jewish Poverty, just days before the High Holidays commence, for a high-level exploration of Jewish teachings on addressing poverty and serving those who struggle with it, both inside and outside the Jewish community.

The session will be led by Rabbi Jill Jacobs, CEO of T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights and author of "There Shall Be No Needy: Pursuing Social Justice Through Jewish Law and Tradition."
