The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights

New York, NY

Mission

T'ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights brings together rabbis and cantors from all streams of Judaism, together with all members of the Jewish community, to act on the Jewish imperative to respect and advance the human rights of all people. Grounded in Torah and our Jewish historical experience and guided by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we call upon Jews to assert Jewish values by raising our voices and taking concrete steps to protect and expand human rights in North America, Israel, and the occupied Palestinian territories. - See more at: http://truah.org/who-we-are/mission-statement.html#sthash.gg7AiAGV.dpuf

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We believe that the job of a rabbi, and the job of the Jewish community, is to be human rights leaders. To that end, we train and mobilize rabbis and rabbinical students to engage their communities in protecting human rights. In our current campaigns, we aim to end the occupation and create a viable two-state solution that will enable both Israelis and Palestinians to have a better future; ensure a long-term solution that allows Bedouin Israelis to live in dignity and with their communities; end modern-day slavery and human trafficking in the United States; ensure that the U.S. never again engages in torture; and reform the systems of policing and mass incarceration that have a disproportionate effect on communities of color in the U.S.

Our strategies include:
--Mobilizing rabbis and their communities on campaigns on which we can have an impact, both in North America, and in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.
--Training rabbinical students and rabbis to be human rights leaders.
--Lifting up the voices of rabbis as moral leaders on human rights.

We have a network of 2000 rabbis and cantors, proven success in organizing for change, and deep knowledge of the Jewish wisdom that inspires us.
