The Biblical Prophets and Social Justice

Prof. Deena Grant of the Hartford Seminary will discuss “The Biblical Prophets and Social Justice” on Jan. 7 at 7:30 on Zoom, as part of the 2021 series of virtual lectures surrounding the theme of “The Jewish Roots of Social Justice,” presented by the ALEPH Institute, a learning initiative sponsored by the Mandell JCC and UConn Judaic Studies. 

The Jan. 7 lecture will focus on Biblical prophets, such as Amos, Isaiah, and Jeremiah, who witnessed and called out systemic social injustices. It will explore the prophetic argument for social justice as well as the prophetic experience of failure, in order to understand the role of prophecy within the larger context Israel’s salvation, exile, and restoration.
