This year, MLK Day looks a little different — but the drive to give back, pursue social and racial justice, and build a better world remains stronger and more critical than ever.

We invite you to explore our opportunities for meaningful learning and service — both virtually and safely in person at select sites. Together as a community, we’ll work to meet the extraordinary need created by the pandemic and address the deep-rooted inequities in our society.

So sign up. Choose the way you spend the day. Now, more than ever, it’s Time for Good.

 

LEARN

In partnership with The Shalom Hartman Institute, we’re providing a morning of meaningful learning with leading scholars about Judaism, justice, and our role in pursuing a more equitable world.

Our illuminating sessions will discuss communal responsibility; Dr. King's powerful writing as seen through the lenses of Jewish text and thought; how we can comfort the ill, bereaved, and socially isolated right now; and racial disparities in the healthcare system. A plenary session will bring together a panel of extraordinary advocates for racial equity who will discuss our moral imperative to end systemic racism and pursue justice in our country and throughout the world.

DO

This MLK Day, we’re mindful of today’s times that compel us to rethink how to offer safe and meaningful service. We’re offering virtual and in-person opportunities — held in accordance with strict safety protocols — to help people hit the hardest by Covid-19.

Opportunities include packing food boxes to combat food insecurity and reaching out to our neighbors with cards or phone calls to safely foster social connection.

Visit our volunteer page and read the information for each opportunity to find the ones that are right for you.

PURSUE JUSTICE

Together, we’ll contribute to the world Dr. King dreamed of and connect ourselves to the values he championed: education, equality, compassion, courage, and service.
