Each year, Passover offers us an amazing chance to infuse our sacred Jewish rituals with our social justice values. The story of our exodus from enslavement and our struggles with being a liberated people teaches us lessons that are all too applicable in today's broken world. The Jewish Social Justice Roundtable strives to hold onto these lessons while we take action to address modern day injustices.
We are so excited to announce that the Roundtable will facilitate a Board Development Training in NYC in July.

During Chanukah, the Roundtable asked people to join us for a communal conversation on social media using #JewishPurpose. We wanted to bring together people who are engaged in Jewish life, people who are occasional participants, and people who watch from the sidelines.
