A project of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, RAC-MA is a locally led movement of Massachusetts Reform Jewish communities organizing across lines of difference to build a more just commonwealth for all. RAC-MA mobilizes the power of 40 congregations representing nearly 14,000 households from across the state to represent the voice and conscience of the Reform Jewish movement. RAC-MA's inaugural state issue campaign, focused on housing justice, launched in June of 2023.

The room had an energy I haven’t felt since before the pandemic, reminding everyone there what can happen when we are in community.
