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.

 

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.

Conversations on Moving Towards Racial Justice

This series is based on the Jewish value that every person must be treated with justice and compassion. All are welcome.

 

We meet twice monthly, on the second and fourth Monday, 7-8:30pm PT, online, with some changes of dates due to holidays.

At each gathering 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.

 

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 year include climate change and racial justice, voter suppression, creating safe communities, reproductive rights, education, reparations, media and more.
