Episode 09: We Have To Pursue Justice

When you learn to pursue justice in Sunday School, growing up to become part of the stream guiding the world toward justice is almost inevitable. There’s an enormous cloud of witnesses to that fact, including Rabbi Lydia Medwin. Lydia is Director of Congregational Engagement and Outreach at The Temple, Atlanta’s oldest Reform synagogue with a long history of civil rights allyship. In this episode, Rabbi Lydia takes us on a journey from a childhood awakening to the work she’s dedicated to today, building strong bonds within her faith community and being part of the flow toward social change that enables us all to live free and be well.
