Reconciliation in the Jewish Tradition

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter provides a justification for the ethic of political reconciliation from the Jewish tradition. It seeks to show how the Jewish tradition provides a grounding for the concepts of reconciliation, justice, peace, and mercy that the previous chapters set forth. For these tasks, it turns both to an analysis of language as found in the Jewish scriptures and an analysis of God's response to evil as found in the Jewish tradition.

Keywords: shalom; mercy; justice; peace; tikkun olam
