Wag­ing Jus­tice: A Doctor’s Jour­ney to Speak Truth and Be Bold

  • From the Publisher
January 1, 2013

In unflinch­ing prose, Dr. Zeitz shares a life­time of strug­gles and hard-won lessons grow­ing up in a Jew­ish fam­i­ly and becom­ing a doc­tor activist and father. He shares his Jew­ish spir­i­tu­al jour­ney of a com­plex dance between heal­ing oth­ers and heal­ing him­self. Ulti­mate­ly, Dr. Zeitz trans­forms the inex­plic­a­ble anger and dis­ap­point­ment he felt at the state of the world and his own past into full throt­tled open-heart­ed, soul-sat­is­fy­ing action set on a glob­al stage. 

Dr. Zeitz trav­els the world, sets up orga­ni­za­tions, builds rela­tion­ships, and speaks truth to pow­er. Deter­mined to wage jus­tice, he would not let go of his vision, and as a result, he has built amaz­ing coali­tions to bring health and jus­tice to all peo­ple. Wag­ing Jus­tice is a per­son­al sto­ry and also a uni­ver­sal one: a sto­ry of action of courage and of for­give­ness; and a ral­ly­ing cry to wage jus­tice in our lives, speak the truth, be bold, and take action in the world today.
