Fair & Independent Judiciary

Federal court decisions impact every aspect of our lives:  The schools we can attend; our privacy; our ability to start a family when we choose; the safety of the products we buy; our religious freedom; and our voting rights.

The judges confirmed to lifetime seats on federal courts, including the US Supreme Court, make the decisions that shape our nation. That’s why ensuring a fair and independent judiciary is essential.

Why are the courts a Jewish Issue?

The importance of justice is a key part of Jewish tradition. Our text and tradition includes the importance of unbiased judges as well as fair and impartial courts. For the system to work for the people it serves, the federal courts must be devised of fair, qualified, and impartial judges who mete out just decisions equally. As the Torah guides, “You shall not render an unfair decision: do not favor the poor or show deference to the rich; judge your kinsman fairly.” (Leviticus 19:15)
