L'Taken Social Justice Seminars

At the Bernard and Audre Rapoport L'Taken Social Justice Seminars, teens from across North America converge on Washington, DC for four days of advocacy and action.

You'll discuss how the Reform Movement applies Jewish perspectives to mobilize around issues like reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, climate change, Israel, health care, and more. You'll spend time meeting new people, exploring Washington, DC, and traveling to Capitol Hill to meet with Congress to advocate for the things YOU care about. Join us and make your voice heard! 

Participants attend L’Taken as part of a congregational delegation or another Jewish communal group.
