A highlight of our Yom Kippur services has been the Isaiah Challenge, a lecture by a social justice leader who is devoting their life to justice. In the prophetic portion (haftarah) that is read on Yom Kippur, Isaiah calls on us to make our fast a fast for justice: “to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and let the oppressed go free.”
