Race Relations Two Column Block

Racial Justice

In the Torah, Jews are taught to accept others, without prejudice or bias. Judaism also teaches the importance of working with others in the community to achieve social justice. The Reform Movement and the RAC work together with representatives from different communities to fight the structural racism that is embedded in our society and to advance justice for all people, regardless of race or ethnicity.

Racial Justice

In the aftermath of the shootings in Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights and Dallas, these resources provide healing and helpful information to stand as effective allies and advocates in the struggle for racial justice.

The Reflect page contains links to materials designed for synagogues and communities to spur learning and conversation about racial diversity, about the deep racial disparities that afflict our society, about how we as Reform Jews can join the struggle for racial justice.

Racial Justice: Reform

Take meaningful action with partners in pursuit of policy change that takes real steps to dismantle structural racism.

Nitzavim: Standing Up for Voter Protection and Participation

From August to November 2016, the Reform Jewish Movement will partnered with the NAACP, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the PICO National Network to protect the right to vote.

Use these resources to celebrate Shabbat Tzedek, and to continue our long history of working across lines of faith and race to end discrimination and speak out against inequality and prejudice.
