CRS Outings: Tzedek Box Exhibit at HUC-JIR

Tue, Mar 14, 2023 • 11:00 AM1:00 PM



Join Cantor De Lowe for a tour of the “Tzedek Box” exhibit at the Heller Musuem at Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion. A new ceremonial object, the tzedek box enables the ritualization of our acts of justice and helps bring sanctity and beauty to this work.

Contemporary artists offer their vision for the Tzedek box, a new ceremonial object for a new ritual aimed at encouraging us to answer the Jewish call for justice. When we complete a meaningful act of social justice, we write a diary entry about the experience and insert it into a Tzedek Box. This ritual regularly prompts us to reflect on what we have learned — and what we still need to do — as we seek to build a more just world. Once a year on Yom HaTzedek, we open the box and review its contents as a form of sacred accountability.

This outing is made possible by a generous gift from Marcia and David Lavipour
