Liberal Judaism champions social justice. In this episode Liberal Jews share some their experiences in the search for social justice, locally and globally. Many of the activities described here are in partnership with other faith groups and non-faith groups and look beyond the needs of the Jewish community. At the same time participants debate whether the fight for social justice has been at the expense of Jewish learning and worship. To what extent is social action an integral part of being Jewish? In recent years, Liberal Jews have been involved in lobbying parliament about a number of campaigns - should Liberal Jews be involved with politics?
