Racial Equity Task Force


JRC’s Racial Equity Task Force is devoted to increasing racial equity within our congregation and throughout our local and global communities. The Task Force plans programming to build awareness about structural and institutional racism. We work toward personal and communal transformation through training, education, conversation, and social action. We plan to create opportunities for JRC members to engage in efforts to promote equity among all racial and ethnic groups and work toward justice throughout our congregation and community. Contact Task Force Chair Jennifer Jaffe at [email protected] to get involved. 

JRC Trip to Montgomery, Alabama: Facing the History of Racial Injustice in the US

Tuesday, July 17 - Friday, July 20, 2018


Rabbi Weiss and fellow JRC members will travel to Montgomery Alabama on this summer trip organized by the Racial Equity Task Force to delve into the history of the southern African American experience and learn how it informs the fight for racial justice today. The heart of this trip will include visits to two newly opening sites:

The Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration

The National Memorial for Peace and Justice

These sites are designed to help our country grapple with slavery and its legacy, and JRC will be among the first synagogue groups in the country to visit.
