The Social Justice Seminar

The Social Justice Seminar is an intensive 10-day program run in cooperation with the Israel Religious Action Center of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism in which participants explore issues of religion and state in Israel, as well as socioeconomic issues, and engage in social action projects.

The seminar delves into the basis of the Jewish concern for a just society, then goes out into the streets of Jerusalem and Israel to turn that vision into a reality. Seminar participants will wrestle with the issues of religion and state, and debate what it means to be a Jewish country and a democracy at the same time. They will learn about the often hidden plight of the poor, the hungry and the homeless, going beyond the statistics to encounter the real people involved.

The seminar will offer creative ways to make a continuing difference while in Israel and back at home. Participants will meet and work together on social action projects with the staff and volunteers of the Israel Religious Action Center and other social service organizations.

IMPJ Food Drive

Sharing the light of Hanukkah
Food insecurity is at an all-time high in Israel. You can minimize the gaps in Israeli society and promote social justice by donating now to distribute food packages to those in need. The Keren b'Kavod department of IMPJ runs a holiday food drive and we can help.
Early donations will ensure that more families receive these essential food packages.

The Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism (IMPJ) distributes holiday food packages to all sectors of Israeli society, regardless of religion or status.
The need is especially great this winter, with loss of employment and reduction in social programs due to the Coronavirus.
CDN $72 provides a basket of food and vouchers for toys and books for struggling families of all denominations.

Your donation matters. Give now.
