The Redemption of Society

“The Torah is not fundamentally about the salvation of the soul. It is about the redemption of society. It is about how to construct a social order that will honour the dignity of the individual, the sanctity of life, and the twin imperatives of justice and compassion. It is about our life together, not about the inner life of the soul…”
