Tzedakah: The Rest is Commentary (subtitled)

Julia NeubergerFilmed at Limmud Conference 2011

I have a real passion for seeing Judaism through the eyes of the prophets and rabbis who saw Judaism as having a role in putting right the wrongs of the world. It’s not that other things are not important, but that this- nourished by Jewish learning and spirituality- gives us a sense of purpose and a sense of continuity with our ancestors, and we hope with our great grandchildren and beyond, that reaches right back into the Biblical period.

Julia Neuberger was educated at Newnham College, Cambridge and Leo Baeck College, London and was ordained as a rabbi in 1977. She was created a Life Peer in June 2004 (as a Liberal Democrat but is now a Crossbencher) and was Bloomberg Professor of Divinity at Harvard University for the Spring Semester in 2006. She became Senior Rabbi of the West London Synagogue in March 2011.
