Rabbinic Global Justice Trip to the Dominican Republic (Jan., 2016)

The Dominican Republic is a country of startling contrasts: breathtaking beauty and abject poverty. The social justice issues plaguing the country are heartbreaking. We can help make a difference.

“Tzedek, Tzekek Tirdof – Justice Justice You Shall Pursue” (Deuteronomy 16:20)

In January I travelled to the Dominican Republic with American Jewish World Service on a Rabbinic Global Social Justice Fellowship to bear witness and learn about the social justice issues affecting the country. My senses were overwhelmed with everything I saw, heard, felt and experienced. (Read here and here to find out more about my week with AJWS and how you can make a difference).

Here are some of the images that illustrate the highlights of my trip.
