T’ruah, the Rabbinic voice for Human Rights in the US, has compiled an incredible list of resources relate to the Black Lives Matter movement.
“How were the Ten Commandments arranged? Five on one tablet and five on the other. On one tablet it was written: I am the Eternal your God, and opposite to it, on the other tablet, was written: You shall not murder. This means that one who sheds blood is considered as having diminished the divine image.”
