Rabbi Mike Moskowitz explores the rich texture of time in Jewish tradition as a way of informing social justice today. Beginning with Passover, we take a deeper look at the festivals of the Jewish calendar and reflect on special characteristics of the holidays.
In these thoughtful essays, Rabbi Moskowitz highlights the unique identity of each season and how time itself can be best used to further our movement toward a more just, free, and equitable society.
“A powerful call to moral conscience and action. With the Jewish calendar as a framework, Rabbi Moskowitz shows how ancient Jewish texts respond to the challenges of our times—homophobia and transphobia, racism, misogyny, and other enduring injustices—with a mandate for resistance. Read this book and uncover pathways through Torah to the work of justice and liberation.”
“Rabbi Moskowitz’s teachings take my breath away and simultaneously give me a reassurance that allows me to breathe easier. He demonstrates how the magical, cross-millennial conversation of the rabbis/meforshim/commentators make a vision of progressive values inevitable.”
