Faith Leaders Make A Difference – JLD

Three weeks ago, the Austin American Statesman published an article wherein Rabbi Jonathan called out a judge who perpetuated an injustice. The backstory is a law enforcement officer in the county over which said judge presides, made demeaning, racist, and sexist posts on social media, which the judge liked. Now while it would be natural for that judge to react negatively towards Rabbi Jonathan for admonishing his actions, Judge Gravell did the opposite. Following several public apologies, Judge Gravell appointed Rabbi Jonathan to a special committee to review policies that would deter county employees (and officials) from making similar mistakes. Wow. In The Church and The Community, Page 87, there was an apology narrative involving high schools students but this folks, is a story with much more modern, and epic proportions. This story also reminds us, faith leaders can make a difference.
