As both peaceful as well as violent demonstrations, marches and incidents of looting and killing have plagued American cities, this week's edition of the Jerusalem Lights Podcast focuses on the Torah's concepts of society to be founded on justice for all, compassion, acts of kindness, and above all, the value of peace, as Hashem's greatest blessings for humanity, but as in every area of human endeavor, it is up to us to make the right decisions.

Jim Long and Rabbi Chaim Richman discuss themes of this week's Torah reading of the portion of Naso as they relate to these as-yet unfolding events.
