Just: Judaism. Action. Social Change.
Just is not just a book, not just a curriculum, not just a resource guide, and not just a “how to” manual for implementing social justice initiatives. What we present in this ground-breaking curriculum is a set of textual resources, discussion questions, and planning exercises related to social action and community service.
