What social justice issues do you care about? Being a Jew and the Carrot reader one would imagine you might think about food justice, hunger, fair trade or local and sustainable food systems – and often through a Jewish lens. So if we care about food issues, but how do we share that with others? Over the next three weeks, we are very fortunate to have Jill Jacobs, the Rabbi-in-Residence for Jewish Funds for Justice offering her insight and thoughts on contentious challenges facing America today.
Not only that, but Jew and the Carrot readers will have the opportunity to share their experiences in tzedakah (financial support for the poor) and chesed (acts of loving-kindness) to enter to win a copy of Rabbi Jacobs’ book There Shall Be No Needy. Simply leave us a comment about how you have given tzedakah or performed chesed. Did you intentionally give your CSA share to someone in need? Have you volunteered at a soup kitchen? Tell us about it.
Share your story here in the comments or in any of Rabbi Jill Jacobs posts before June 18, 2009, and one lucky winner will be randomly selected to win a copy of her book. The winner will be announced Friday June 19, 2009.
