Tzedek (Justice) and Misphat (Law) appear hundreds of times in the Torah. They define God’s will and convey the very purpose of Abraham’s election by God. As distinct terms they mark an integration of law and compassion. Join JCC Manhattan and Eshel for a special examination of Tzedek and Mishpat in the Book of Genesis with Shuli Taubes. This program is presented as part of BeisCamp, Eshel’s traveling LGBT Beit Midrash that hosts religious educators, scholars and rabbis to engage in the challenges of contemporary life and tradition.
