The podcast from Rabbi Neil Janes. This week Rabbi Janes discusses the basis for understanding a responsibility to participate in the betterment of society and to engage in its governance. Principles extending back to the Biblical prophets echo throughout all the generations to create a Jewish world view that cannot remain indifferent to injustice and oppression. The history of the Jewish community also leaves us with a sense of duty towards the country in which we find ourselves living.
