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. These rituals and prayers infuse that work with a sense of holiness and perspective to help us do just that.
