Dear Friends,
Be The Light for Social Justice! This issue of our Tzedek, Tzedek Tirdof – Pursue Justice Newsletter is focused on opportunities for advocacy and engagement.
General Advocacy:
Reform Jewish Voice of New York State (RJV), under the auspices of the Union for Reform Judaism, is Judaism’s progressive voice for social justice in New York State. RJV just announced that registration is now open for RJV’s Annual Albany Advocacy Day.
On Monday, March 12, 2018, RJV will lead an intergenerational force lobbying for:
  • Early voting and the NY Votes Act
  • Reproductive choice

  • Clean energy
  • Protecting public education
  • Ending the unjust money bail system
Your voice is needed! Register today at rjvnys.org/aad.

Engage in Acts of Tikkun Olam:
On Thursday, February 14th, we will spend the morning at the AFYA Foundation, (140 Saw Mill River Road, Yonkers). Join Barbara Wexler and friends from Kol Ami as we sort and pack critically needed medical supplies, hospital equipment, and humanitarian provisions which will be shipped by AFJA to casualties of the worldwide health crises. We will meet at Kol Ami at 9:30AM and carpool together.
Space is limited. Please RSVP to Barbara Wexler at wexlerartworks@gmail.com.
