Justice and Human Rights

By Jill Jacobs

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2011

The author argues that in our efforts to create a more just world, we need both the discourse of human rights and the discourse of social justice. Human rights law reminds us that each of us, as a creation in the divine image, deserves a fair standard of living. The language of social justice insists that each of us also has an obligation to help create the world in which we want to live.
