Pursuing Justice

As members of local and global Jewish communities, we bear responsibility for pursuing justice and equality for all the citizens of the world. We can all give tzedakah and a little time, while some of us have the capacity to do much more. We make the world better when we fight for justice from a place of humility and love, not rage. These rituals and prayers infuse that work with a sense of holiness and perspective to help us do just that.

A Bride's Prayer on Behalf of Agunot

Prayer
There is a folk tradition that the gates of heaven are particularly open to the prayers of the bride and groom. In some communities, wedding couples are handed small pieces of paper prior to the processional on which personal prayers are written. They read these prayers as they walk down the aisle and while circling one another. This prayer is offered in that tradition.  [more]
