Zion shall be redeemed with justice…

So, why are we told tzedek tzedek tirdof, pursue justice? The 19th-century Hassidic commentator Sefat Emet wrote, “We have to keep pursuing justice, knowing that we have not yet attained it.” – Justice, Pursue Justice [Deuteronomy 16:20]

Isaiah 1
27 Zion shall be redeemed with justice…

In stark contrast to present-day reality, hanging on the wall leading to where my crowded cell was in the Russian Compound (seeIsraeli police sent on wild-goose chase“), are paintings of Jerusalem with the biblical quote: “Zion shall be redeemed with justice” (Isaiah 1:27). Such statements of faith ring hollow in those halls of injustice, but they do proclaim our only hope: the Kingdom of God will save us from the failings of men!
