Elliot Dorff explores the Jewish perspective of social justice in relation to topics such as poverty, war, intrafaith and interfaith relations, family and privacy. He also covers Jewish social ethics as they both relate to and contrast with today's Christian and American belief systems. Dorff, a respected leader in the field of Jewish ethics, argues that Jewish sources, when properly placed within the framework of modern-day realities, can provide guidance for Jews looking to "do the right and the good" in their daily lives. These writings help many Jews understand the foundations and directions of their own social responsibility.
