Tikkun Tikvah – Working to Reform California’s Criminal Justice System
Join Emanu-El Clergy in Sacramento on 9/12!
As you may be aware, Congregation Emanu-El has been a part of Reform CA since its inception. Reform CA is the statewide social justice effort of Reform Jews in California.
Reform CA is just now launching a new campaign called Tikkun Tikvah that will focus on sentencing reform in our state. This includes working to pass proposition 57. Here is a link with lots of info on the Reform CA website about this initiative.
Most urgently, we are inviting you to join us in Sacramento on 9/12 for a meeting with Governor Brown and a lobby day about our campaign. This will be an exciting opportunity to gather with Reform Jews from across our state to engage in a conversation about Jewish social justice with our elected officials.
We are really hoping to take a group of congregants with us and would love if you were one of them! If you are interested and available to join us on September 12 (leaving at 7 am, aiming to be back by 6 pm) please RSVP directly to Rabbi Rodich at [email protected]
Thanks so much,
Rabbis Beth Singer, Carla Fenves and Jason Rodich
