JCUA Founder Rabbi Robert Marx at Annual Dinner: “The Choice Is Always There”

Each year at the Rabbi Robert J. Marx Social Justice Awards Dinner, JCUA honors socially conscious individuals who act on the values that Rabbi Robert Marx, founder of JCUA, lives and teaches. This year, the Saks Family received the award.

Esther Saks, lifelong social activist, and her late husband Alan Saks dedicated their days to fighting for causes they believed in, and in their 50-year marriage, raised four daughters who’ve devoted their lives to working on issues of human rights, women’s rights, race, hunger, and equitable business practices.

In this video from the dinner, Rabbi Marx talks about the impact oppression has on society and the choice we have as human beings to do good in the world.

Rabbi Marx makes reference to the days of creation as described in the book of Genesis.
