"Dave Brubeck is a product not only of Judeo-Christian thinking but of the humanistic tradition of the
Enlghtenment. His identification with Jews, blacks and all who have known the lash of oppression is
anything but accidental. The Hebrew Bible and most particularly the prophetic writings with their
passion for social justice represnet for him the essence of religious thought. Like Martin Luther
King, Jr., Dave Brubeck is convinced that "We must learn to live together as brothers or die
together as fools." The Gates of Justice is a cantata based on Jewish texts, but its meaning is
universal." - Rabbi Charles D. Mintz
