  • On Monday, 5/18 at 5:00pm PT, the Religious Action Center (RAC) of Reform Jews will host a virtual town hall featuring Reform Movement leaders and our partners from across lines of difference to formally launch the Every Voice, Every Vote campaign. As Reform Jews, we believe democracy is strongest when everyone participates, and suffers when citizens are shut out from the democratic process or choose not to engage. this campaign will encourage all U.S. citizens to exercise their right to vote, and work to break down obstacles that shut some out of the voting booth. Following the launch, we’ll have a series of training sessions that will help you participate in different aspects of the campaign. To get started, learn about the campaign and RSVP for the virtual townhall.

  • Rabbi Schulman and Morah Marla and I will be leading a Sababa Wednesday session on Wednesday, 5/20 from 7:30pm to 8:30pm on Zoom. Details will be sent at a later time.
