What is the #JewishResistance

How is the Jewish community effectively showing up for our partners in directly impacted communities, as well as Mizrahi Jews and Jews of Color in our own community? How can we call on New York political leaders to stand up to the administration and create real sanctuary, real safety, and real justice for all New Yorkerss? Broken windows policing puts all of our communities at risk – there is no sanctuary without police accountability. Our community is called right now to be the #JewishResistance of our time.

Come learn about JFREJ’s approach to these questions, and help us mobilize our community for upcoming actions in April:
