Social Justice Holiday Resources

Jewish holidays are rich with themes, stories and rituals that exemplify the Jewish commitment to justice. AJWS offers a range of publications that draw connections between Jewish holidays and our work to end poverty and realize human rights in the developing world.

Holidays All Year Long
