Seek the Peace and Prosperity of Your City": Towards an Expanded Interpretation of Jeremiah's Call

By Rachel Liel

The Jewish Peoplehood Hub, November 2010

The seeming contradiction between parochial and universal concerns in Jewish philanthropy and social action need not pose, in reality, any contradiction at all. Charity, as we know, begins at home -- but it cannot end there. Caring for our own, and caring for the other, is not just a question of balance, but needs to be a question of definition and interpretation as well.
