Compassion & Justice

Our tradition calls on us to protect the vulnerable, work for justice, and heal our world.

 

Through our Compassion and Justice activities we seek ways to do this, sustainably and effectively, in the realms of both service and advocacy.

 

We draw on Jewish wisdom to better understand the issues we want to address, and to work for change in ways that are grounded in both justice and compassion.

Currently, we focus on learning about and working towards racial justice, and on learning about Israel-Palestine issues. 

 

WHO: Everyone who would like to participate in these efforts is welcome.

 

You don't need to be Jewish to work together to make the world better, or to explore and draw on Jewish wisdom on these topics.

 

Racial Justice Conversations

Fall session begins October 11

This series, embodying Jewish values, is sponsored by Jewish Gateways. Everyone is welcome.

 

Join us semimonthly - on the second and fourth Mondays from 7-8:30pm PT - as we deepen our awareness of racism and explore how we put that awareness into effective action. We learn from speakers, videos and small group sharing.

Each month, we inquire into how racism affects ourselves, our relationships, and our local and national practices as related to a specific current topic.

 

Topics for this coming year include voter suppression, creating safe communities, reproductive rights, education, climate change, reparations, media and more.
