RAC-TX Austin Advocacy Days


Mark your calendars: after 18 months of building community and deepening our network of Reform congregations throughout the state, the Texas Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC-TX) is headed to Austin! We’ll be focusing on school finance reform – a top issue for state legislative leadership that speaks to our deeply-held Jewish value that every child deserves access to quality education.


Registration is OPEN!
