Trafficking, Through a Jewish Lens

By Ruth Messinger, Jody Jacobson

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2008

The authors discuss human trafficking, a modern form of slavery. They assert that human trafficking is a "Jewish" issue because it resonates within the Jewish community, linking us to our own long history of enslavement and oppression. They conclude that our obligation to tikkun olam requires us to challenge our assumptions and understand and address these issues in their totality in the historic struggle for freedom from slavery.
