The Reform Movement Stands Up for Democracy

 
Recent events in the US remind us that democracy is fragile and peace is not a given. We join with our Reform colleagues around the world in speaking up against hate.

Dear Chaverim,

A YEAR OF HOPE

Goodbye to 2020!

Together we look ahead to a time when the pandemic is under control and we can return to a more normal rountine, even if not exactly pre-Covid. But the road ahead will be bumpy.

Israel is rolling out the vaccine faster than most countries, but is suffering its third lockdown in ten months.  Israelis are also thrust into a fourth election campaign in two years.  At a time when stability is needed, there is even more uncertainty.

But we don’t throw up our hands in despair. The pandemic has taught us the power of hope and the power of collective action.

Our colleagues in Israel continue to work for social justice, religious pluralism and equality.  Let’s make sure that 2021 is our time to speak out to ensure a Jewish and democratic Israel.
