Shmuly Yanklowitz

During this month of reflection and repentance, we zoom inward to the soul and also outwards to all of existence. We are asked to consider our role in personal, communal and global injustice. How do we repent for inadvertently supporting injustice?  How do our reflections lead to a response? What might a new year of living as a passionate Jew and active global citizen look like?
