The mission of the Advocacy Committee is to lead Temple Israel involvement in social and political advocacy, in keeping with our Jewish values and the increasing emphasis which the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) is placing on helping congregations perform the work of Tikkun Olam – the Repair of the World.
The Stronger Together Solidarity Fair on Sunday May 15, 2022, was a huge success with over twenty-eight grassroots, anti-racist, and human rights – workers, women, immigrants, refugees, LGBTQ – and climate organizations gathered – “In Person” – with exhibits, information, and networking on Social Justice work.
