Exploring the World of Judaism: Social Justice, Ethics, and the Hebrew Prophets

Justice, Justice, Pursue it! These are the words of the Torah. Yet across cultures and religions we hear a similar imperative. Why? Why do we seek order and justice in daily life? Join Rabbi Shreibman in exploring the human urge to improve the lot of the “other” with dynamic impact of the Hebrew prophets on Jesus, Paul, Mohammed, Martin Luther King, and human rights activists today.

Rabbi Henry Shreibman, Ph.D. currently serves as a professor of Religion, Ethics and Philosophy at Dominican University and Sonoma State University. An ordained Rabbi since 1981, by the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, PA, he earned a Ph.D, M.Phil and MA from Columbia University, NY. In 2013, he was named by the Jewish Daily Forward as one of America’s 36 most inspiring rabbis.
