  1. Just and righteous causes : Rabbi Ira Sanders and the fight for racial and social justice in Arkansas, 1926-1963

    Moses, James L., 1960-
    Fayetteville : University of Arkansas Press, 2018.

    "A dedicated advocate for social justice long before the term entered everyday usage, Rabbi Ira Sanders began striving against the Jim Crow system soon after he arrived in Little Rock from New York in 1926. Sanders, who led Little Rock's Temple B'nai Israel for nearly forty years, was a trained social worker as well as a rabbi and his career as a dynamic religious and community leader in Little Rock spanned the traumas of the Great Depression, World War II and the Holocaust, and the social and racial struggles of the 1950s and 1960s. Just and Righteous Causes--a full biographical study of this bold social-activist rabbi--examines how Sanders expertly navigated the intersections of race, religion, and gender to advocate for a more just society. It joins a growing body of literature about the lives and histories of Southern rabbis, deftly balancing scholarly and narrative tones to provide a personal look into the complicated position of the Southern rabbi and the Jewish community throughout the political struggles of the twentieth-century South"--"Little Rock Rabbi Ira Sanders was a dynamic force for social justice and racial equality in Arkansas. His lifetime devotion and many activities on behalf of bold social activism provide a means to analyze not only his specific contributions to Arkansas history, but also the larger story of the movements for racial and social justice in Arkansas and the twentieth-century south.
