Abby Levine, the Roundtable's Director, and April Baskin, the Roundtable's Racial Justice Director, published Four Insights for Realizing Racial Justice in the Jewish New Year on September 17, 2019, in eJewishPhilanthropy.  In this OpEd, they examine four lessons learned since the Roundtable committed to racial justice trainings in 2016. 

Pilot Racial Justice Framework

The Jewish Social Justice Roundtable has created this pilot Racial Justice Framework to help guide and support our collective efforts around racial justice.

The Roundtable also created posters of the Guiding Principles that are easy to print and display.  Links to the poster PDFs are at the bottom of this page.
