On the Wings of Our Conscience

“We were carried to Selma … years ago on the wings of our Jewish conscience,
which insisted that it is our moral duty as Jews and as American citizens
to say no to the insidious and tenacious racism of this country
that is ruining the values we cherish and is covering justice and righteousness with chains.”
