Proximate Justice - Speaking Truth, Seeking Reconciliation in the Face of America's Enduring Racial Pandemic

Join Rabbi Michael Lezak of Glide's Center for Social Justice for a night of painful (and often inspiring) stories and prophetic dreaming from America's justice landscape 

Michael Lezak is the Rabbi at GLIDE in San Francisco, a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization. He works in GLIDE’S Center for Social Justice, aiming to magnify the impact of GLIDE’s justice machinery and to forge covenantal bonds between GLIDE and the broader Jewish community. He spearheads groundbreaking work with law enforcement and district attorneys from around the country to help them understand the challenges faced by people living in extreme poverty. In his previous position as Rabbi of Congregation Rodef Sholom, he founded programs to help families and inmates at Pelican Bay State, San Quentin, and Vacaville prisons. Rabbi Lezak is on the national board of T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights. He is married to Rabbi Noa Kushner and is the proud father of three daughters.
