Stephanie D. Kolin
Parashat Mishpatim: Restoring Justice to Our Justice System

Stephanie D. Kolin  |  February 24, 2017

Instead of a system built to punish, our tradition reflects a system built to rehabilitate and restore – to provide a second chance. With support, resources, and an investment in this person, they can change their life’s trajectory...This is actually something we’ve been learning a lot about here at Central recently. Through our Listening Campaign, we found that criminal justice reform and racial equality are high on the list of things we care about as a community. We learned there is much we would like to fix about the system and we know we can’t do it all. But we learned also that we can change the system for one of the most vulnerable populations caught up in it – children.
