The highest form of Tzedakah, charity or distributive justice, involves helping individuals to become self-supporting and self-sufficient.
Rabbi Hillel said:
If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
If I am only for myself, what am I?
If not now, when?
I am the rabbinic liaison to the Social Justice Council and help oversee all Social Justice within the congregation. I also have a full range of rabbinical responsibilities in leading worship, officiating at Life Cycle events, teaching, preaching, counseling and serving as a full member of the synagogue's pastoral team.
