We believe that the active pursuit of justice and dignity for all is a core expression of our Jewish spiritual and religious selves, and we integrate that belief into everything we do at IKAR. Minyan Tzedek is how we harness the organizing power of our entire community to work toward the world as it ought to be. Our goal is 100% community participation through one of our four paths: Feeding Our Neighbors, Green Action, IKAR Organizing, and Global Partnership.
Our expectation is that every member of the community participates in the work of tikkun– healing. We invite you to join others who share your passions and interests, and help us bring real, sustainable change to our city and world.
Faith Communities Reuniting Families: Delmi*, her partner and her five-year-old son fled El Salvador and were separated at the border a few months ago.
- IKAR and Leo Baeck Temple have been working on getting them medical and legal resources. We helped get Delmi settled with a relative in the LA area. Her partner is still in detention. We are working to set up a fund for them. They will need ongoing supportive services, clothing, transportation, medical supplies and household basics.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to help.
More to come soon on further ways you can get involved.
- IKAR is proud to be part of the initiative: Faith Communities Reuniting Families.
