  • Year

  • Description

    Led by Rabbi Jill Jacobs, T’ruah is a cross-denomination network of more than 2,000 rabbis and cantors using their voices for social change. In response to requests for guidance from their members on how to respond to racism and anti-Semitism, T’ruah is investing more deeply in moral leadership, and will provide resources, skills-based trainings, and peer-to-peer support. They will also equip clergy to provide “movement chaplaincy”—spiritual support for activists—to the growing number of American Jews dedicating themselves to social justice, thereby supporting people to do this work long-term.
