This fascinating treatise confronts the most pressing issues of twenty-first-century America¿including health care, criminal justice, labor, and the environment¿by bringing classical Jewish sources into striking dialogue with contemporary policy debates and the real-life stories of working people. The results are often unexpected. Written by one of the leading young voices in the arena of social justice, it presents a template for engagement in public life from a Jewish perspective and challenges us to renew our obligations to each other.
