Ben Azzai: Social Justice Through a Jewish Lens
Feb 15 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

“Ben Azzai*: Social Justice through a Jewish Lens” is a program that was formed in the Spring 2015 semester at Rutgers to help students explore the topics of current social justice issues & debates, while examining what Judaism has to say about these discussions. Each semester, we will choose a different issue on which to focus. For the first half of the semester we will be continuing with our topic from last semester of COMBATTING ISLAMAPHOBIA, and then in March we will be picking a new topic.

While this group will be investigating the Jewish perspective on many topics, we strongly encourage those from other religious/non-religious backgrounds to join us in our meetings and initiatives!

*WHY BEN AZZAI?
Simon Ben Azzai (or Simon, the son of Azzai) was a second century sage.

The Sifra (a collection of rabbinic commentary on the book of Leviticus) presents a debate between Rabbi Akiva and Ben Azzai about what is the most central principle of the Torah.

Rabbi Akiva said that “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18) is the most important principle. During his time, however, Jews only lived in community with other Jews; they had no different neighbors.

Ben Azzai responds to say that an even more important principle is “This is the book of the generations of Adam” (Genesis 5:1). He reminds us that the story of the world is not the story of any one particular people, but of all people, everywhere, since we all descend from a common source. Social justice demands that we respond to all those in need, whether they are like us or not.

Inspired by his empathy and wisdom, we are Ben Azzai.
