Racial Justice

In the Torah, Jews are taught to accept others without prejudice or bias. Judaism also teaches the importance of working with others in the community to achieve social justice. The Reform Movement and the RAC work together across lines of difference to fight the structural racism that is embedded in our society and to advance justice for all people, regardless of race or ethnicity.

The Reflect page contains links to materials designed for synagogues and communities to spur learning and conversation about racial diversity, about the deep racial disparities that afflict our society, about how we as Reform Jews can join the struggle for racial justice.
