Description: To Do the Right and the Good is Rabbi Dorff's examination of Judaism's commitment to social equality. Many of the laws and theological tenets of the Torah articulate social justice as a central Jewish principle, and over the years, Jewish law and thought have expanded upon this foundation. As Jews were accepted more fully into general society, they became all the more interested in making society as a whole not only fair and equitable, but also supportive and, as much as possible, ideal. Rabbi Dorff brings the discussion into the present day, as he speaks to this social aspect of the Jewish tradition. He explores the Jewish perspective of social justice in relation to topics such as poverty, war, intrafaith and interfaith relations, family, and privacy. He also covers Jewish social ethics as they both relate to and contrast with today's Christian and American belief systems.
