"Pursue Justice, redress the wronged, hear the orphan's plea, defend the widow." Isaiah 1:17
Translation by Rabbi Renee Bauer.
The prophet Isaiah challenges us all with the basic Jewish value: to protect the vulnerable. This is an especially fitting choice for the attorney, interfaith worker or a champion for social justice. Set in a design from a 13th Century Islamic illuminated manuscript, the original text is in Hebrew, the English in a medieval Christian style.
