Ways To Engage and Educational Resources
As Jews, the Torah teaches us to accept others without bias (Leviticus 19: 17-18) and that we are all made in G-d's image (B'tzelem Elohim), values connected to the current calls for racial justice we are hearing throughout the country.
Our hearts are broken. Our souls cry out for justice.
This has been a very difficult week for our country and many of us are seeking ways to learn more, stand up, and participate in creating a more just society.
