Gun Violence Prevention Campaign

Gun Violence Prevention: Reflect

We've compiled a list of materials and resources designed for synagogues and communities to spur learning and conversation about gun violence prevention, encourage individuals to learn more about the complex issue of gun violence, and do some personal reflection that is the first step to making our country safer.

Gun Violence Prevention: Relate

Relate resources provide opportunities for context and deeper learning on the issue of gun violence. Explore our resources and programs for congregants and community members of all ages. 

In the face of the unabated, preventable epidemic of gun violence, Congress must act. The vast majority of Americans, including gun owners, support common sense policies like background checks for every gun sale to prevent senseless violence.

The Background Check Expansion Act (H.R.8) and the Bipartisan Background Checks Act (S.42) will expand the federal background check requirement to include the sale or transfer of all firearms by private sellers, including those sales conducted online or at a gun show.

NFTY and the Reform Movement are outraged by the ongoing lack of action addressing this epidemic. Stand united with NFTY as we fight for gun violence prevention!

Urge Congress to take immediate action to stop gun violence

As Reform Jews, it is our duty to demand that Congress pass common sense gun legislation and save countless innocent lives, like the 11 tragically lost in Pittsburgh on October 27. Call on your legislators to take action to end the unacceptably high rates of gun violence in our country. 

Additional resources on gun violence

These resources include text studies, educational materials, and even table-tents to introduce a discussion on policy, moral values around gun violence, or coping with tragedy in your congregations and communities in addition to some of our community partners.
