Jewish lawyers of the world unite in celebrating this week’s parsha, where Moses instructs the people of Israel to appoint judges and law enforcement administrators in every city. “Justice, justice shall you pursue,” Moses explains, without corruption or favoritism to the rich or powerful. In my mind, I think of the scales of justice in perfect balance. On my plate, I think of the scales of a delicious baked trout – dressed up for Shabbat with a light fennel salad.
