Religious Action Center’s Moral Leadership Training
In 2018, RPF made a grant to the Religious Action Center (RAC) to bring together rabbis from across the country who felt compelled to speak out on justice issues but were afraid of polarization. With our support, the organization—which represents the largest Jewish denominational movement in the United States—held a two-day, in-person training for 150 rabbis working with politically diverse communities. With this renewal grant, the RAC will host a next-level moral leadership training for rabbis while also training the congregational leaders who support them. This year-long effort will invite hundreds of rabbis and their congregations to understand current issues more deeply, build powerful relationships across lines of difference, and provide moral leadership with confidence and skill.
