Compassion & Justice Interest Circle
Our tradition calls on us to protect the vulnerable, work for justice, and heal our world.
Our Compassion and Justice Interest Circle seeks 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 building relationships with and being allies to our Muslim neighbors, and on supporting vulnerable immigrants and refugees.
The Compassion and Justice Interest Circle is led by Jewish Gateways participants. You are welcome to participate in our actions and projects, whether or not you are able to be part of planning and organizing them.
HOW: Please contact Adrianne Bank by email or call her at 510-410-0622 to learn more about the group and explore how you might want to be involved.
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 this topic.

Join Our Muslim Neighbors to Help Feed Families Experiencing Homelessness
On the third Friday of each month, from 4:00-6:30pm, Jewish Gateways participants join with members of the Islamic Society of West Contra Costa County to cook dinner for residents of the Families in Transition Program. It is sponsored by the Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP) and is located at 165 22nd Street, Richmond.
