How CiviC EngagEmEnt is good for SynagoguEs, JEws, and AmEriCa

Yes! Rabbi Judy Schindler and Judy Seldin-Cohen have provided exactly what
we need: real, thoughtful, hands-on opportunities for Jewish communities to
make concrete change in America. As we read in Deuteronomy, pursuing justice
is an eternal religious obligation for the Jewish people. If there was ever a time
when we were called to that obligation, it is now.
RABBI RACHEL TIMONER, Senior Rabbi,
Recharging Judaism is a welcome addition to the growing literature on Jewish
social justice. Perhaps the book's greatest contributions are the innumerable
examples provided of rabbis and lay leaders throughout the country who are
taking on significant social policy issues through voluntarism and advocacy.
In so doing, these leaders are exciting interest in Jewish life among Jews who
might otherwise remain unengaged, and they are fulfilling one of the core
purposes of Judaism.
RABBI SID SCHWARZ
Judaism and Justice: The Jewish Passion to Repair the World;

Rabbi Judith Schindler and Judy Seldin-Cohen

This book is a guide and an inspiration for Jews in this troubled time, showing
us how to become agents of change in a world that is crying out for justice. In
Peter, Paul and Mary, it was our deep civic engagement, expressed in our songs
and in our actions, that united us and guided us through the life-changing,
painful, glorious struggles of the Civil Rights Movement, the Anti-Vietnam War
Movement, and movements beyond. As a Jew and an activist, if I could have
one wish fulfilled, it would be that Judaism would indeed be recreated according
to the precepts of this book. I have no doubt that if this were to occur, it would
usher in a golden era - not only for Jews but for all those inspired to follow this
crucially important path, now more than ever.
