A Prescription for an Ethical Religious Practice

By Irene Lehrer-Sandalow

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, October 2009

In this column, part of the Sigi Ziering series on the ethics of leadership, the author discusses immigration reform and the labor abuses by the Agriprocessors, Inc. kosher meat-packing plant. She urges that our institutions must protect workers and defend human rights. She concludes that the sanctification of God can be put faithfully into practice only when the ethical and the ritual are inextricably connected.
