Overview

How do we expand health care coverage to more Americans? Are hate crimes legislation and affirmative action fair? What sacrifices must we make to protect the environment? Is the death penalty morally acceptable? Contributors include Jill Jacobs, of Jewish Funds for Justice; Arthur Waskow, director of The Shalom Center; and TV commentator and UCLA law professor Laurie Levenson. Each volume in this series presents hypothetical cases on specific topics, followed by traditional and contemporary sources. Supplementing these are brief essays, written by contributors of various ages, backgrounds, and viewpoints to provoke lively thought and discussion. These voices from Jewish tradition and today’s Jewish community present us with new questions and perspectives, encouraging us to consider our own moral choices in a new light.

Editorial Reviews

Heritage Florida Jewish News
"War and National Security and Social Justice are the most difficult volumes of the series to read because they demand far more attention than previous books. Yet, the need to address these topics is vital. The Jewish Publication Society is to be commended for publishing works that should engender discussions on issues that will affect not only current generations but the future of humanity."—Heritage Florida Jewish News
