& Allyship Resources
As a Jewish community, we are reminded of our mandate to ensure that no other community or people is ever made to endure discrimination or hardship, for it is written in our Torah
“צדק צדק תרדוף, Justice, Justice, you shall pursue.”
We stand in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters and all communities of color, and follow their lead in fostering a society free from racial discrimination.
* We realize that this is a particularly exhaustive list of resources, and we urge you to find the resources and materials that are most helpful to you and your continued education. As our sacred text Pirke Avot states: “It is not your obligation to finish the work, but nor are you free to desist from it.”
