The Tzedek Council
2020-21 Pillars of Social Justice
Join us in reimagining our future
For 2020-21, the Tzedek Council’s efforts will focus on three pillars of social justice:
Homelessness & Food Insecurity: We will continue our core work around supporting our homeless population, in partnership with local organizations.
Racial Justice: We are sharpening our focus on systemic racial injustice, and will offer ongoing opportunities for education, action, and dialogue.
Civic Engagement & Advocacy: In this election year, we continue the work of education and advocacy, particularly around voter suppression.
What is the Tzedek Council? The Congregation Emanu-El Tzedek Council was launched in August 2015 as a congregant, board, and clergy run group, charged with the task of raising awareness and organizing our community, in order to create timely and impactful social justice programs and civic engagement.
Mission: Congregation Emanu-El’s Tzedek Council responds to the indignities impacting our community by translating our Reform Jewish values into social justice action that will transform our world into a more just society.
Vision: The Tzedek Council offers a variety of social justice service and partnership opportunities to catalyze congregant action, integrates Tikkun Olam throughout all Temple programming, and provides a place for Emanu-El members to build community and engage more broadly to bring healing and justice to our world.
