The Soul of Jewish Social Justice offers a novel, intellectual, and spiritual approach to the application of Jewish wisdom to the most pressing moral problems of our time. We discover how the Jewish social justice ethos can help us address issues of education reform, ethical consumption, the future of Israel, immigration and prison reform, violence, business ethics, and many other moral issues. In this book, Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz explores how spirituality, ritual, narratives, holidays, and tradition can enhance our commitment to creating a more just society.

Praise for The Soul of Jewish Social Justice

"In The Soul of Jewish Social Justice, Rav Shmuly leaves no stone unturned halachically, socially, politically, and religiously. This book is set to become the quintessential reference for all social issues in Judaism and it will be featured prominently among the bookshelves of those of us who value a Judaism of social welfare and consciousness."
–Mayim Bialik, Emmy nominated actress, PhD, Neuroscience, Author

"Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz’s name has become synonymous with the call for ethical renewal and social justice within the American Jewish community. A modern Orthodox rabbi, he fuses ancient teachings with progressive sensibilities. In this much-needed volume, he shares with readers his thoughts on central questions of our day. Our world will be a better place if his message is widely heeded."
–Jonathan D. Sarna, Joseph H. & Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History, Brandeis University
