PROMOTING JUSTICE
& INCLUSION

Our diverse NY Jewish community needs a shared space where all feel safe and valued.
We’re drawing from the Jewish tradition of social justice to help make our world a better place. Strengthening relationships between the Jewish community and our neighbors to build coalitions and take action around issues of common concern.
We're also looking inward to make sure Jews of Color are included at our own communal table. Supporting greater awareness in the Jewish community for climate justice. And fostering connections between Jewish New Yorkers of every stripe, because our communities are wonderfully diverse. And this diversity makes us all stronger.

What does the word "empathy" mean?

Our Impact 

  • We’ve raised the New York profile of the Jewish Social Justice Roundtable, a national organization based in Washington, D.C., that mobilizes the Jewish community to fight systemic oppression.

  • We launched the Jewish Coalition on Criminal Justice Reform to create a dialogue among NYC communities about how we can best go about this.

  • We launched a New York hub of the Bay-area Jews of Color Initiative to support organizations led by Jews of Color and provide guidance to Jews of Color looking to work in the Jewish communal professional space with coaching, workshops, and field placements to develop their leadership skills.

  • We’re supporting initiatives at camps, synagogues, and organizations that serve LGBTQ Jews.

  • We’re supporting greater awareness and advocacy for green policies that work toward a more sustainable and healthy environment through Dayenu: A Jewish Call to Climate Justice.

  • We creatively meet the needs of incredibly diverse (and new!) Jewish neighborhoods.

  • We helped nearly 11,700 children and teens with disabilities and special needs receive a range of services.
