The Jewish tradition requires justice — in Hebrew, “tzedek.” This goes beyond criminal justice. Indeed, we seek justice in all cases, between all creatures. A just world is a world in balance, a world without want. We seek to bring balance to the world through the performance of mitzvot, religious and ethical actions that nudge the world just a bit further from pain and a bit closer to bounty.

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona's incoming governor may be faced with a lot of the same bills his predecessor passed on.
Sponsors of legislation that Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed said they see Gov.-elect Doug Ducey as a possible second chance. Lawmakers including state Rep. John Kavanagh and Rep. Warren Petersen say they are already making plans to resurrect certain measures.
"It's already written, so there's nothing to lose," Kavanagh told the Arizona Capitol Times .
The Republican from Fountain Hills, who is moving to the Senate in January, intends to revive a bill banning aggressive panhandling. Brewer said the bill didn't clearly address any statewide concern.
Petersen, a Republican from Gilbert, wants to sponsor an anti-regulatory bill that Brewer vetoed last year. The bill enforces civil penalties on government officials who make licensing decisions based on requirements that aren't permitted under state statute. Brewer had called the bill "punitive and unnecessary." Petersen said he is hopeful Ducey's business background will mean a shared opinion.
"What's great about Ducey is he knows what it's like to work in the real world and run a business and deal with red tape. So when it comes to government accountability, I see him signing anything in that fashion that crosses his desk," Petersen said.
Some high-profile bills that Brewer vetoed include legislation that would have given added protection from lawsuits to people who assert religious beliefs in refusing service to gays. She also denied a bill exempting ride-sharing businesses such as Uber from the same state-imposed requirements as taxis. She vetoed legislation three times that would allow people with concealed weapon permits to bring firearms into public buildings.
Ducey has already started getting in touch with legislative leaders, Republicans and Democrats. He said how much he communicates with them about legislation will depend on the issue, but he does plan to maintain good communication.
"I typically do like to operate from a standpoint of little to no surprises," Ducey said. "So I think that's how you build relationships and get things done."
Brewer vetoed 141 bills in her six years as governor. Only her predecessor, Democrat Janet Napolitano, has vetoed more.

PHOENIX (AP) — Police say a suspect shot a man at a Phoenix car wash and then took a seat on the ground nearby.
PHOENIX (AP) — A man accused of deliberately driving his vehicle into an assisted-care home in Phoenix and causing the death of a 61-year-old man is in jail.
Phoenix police spokesman James Holmes says 48-year-old Edward Orpheus has been booked on one count of manslaughter and six felony counts of endangerment.
Police say Orpheus drove his Nissan into a bedroom at the group home around 6:45 p.m. on Nov. 16.
The vehicle struck the victim, who later succumbed to his injuries at a hospital.
No one else was injured in the incident. The home is occupied by five adult clients and two caretakers.
Police say Orpheus had no connection to anyone in the home.
Holmes says authorities are still not sure what motivated Orpheus to purposely drive into the home.
They are everywhere. They are some who watched the Towers fall and chose to hold forgiveness in their hearts. They are those whose dreams died that day, but knew to keep living in gratitude.
