Urgency of Now Initiative

In 2017, the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism launched the Urgency of Now Initiative on behalf of the Reform Jewish Movement

Developing a strong network of active and empowered congregations is imperative to the sacred work of תקון עולם (tikkun olam), repairing the world. The Urgency of Now Initiative focused on building power and momentum across North America by engaging congregations in issue-specific social justice work that enables us to grow and learn from one another.  

In a polarized political climate, this Initiative helps congregations come together, initiate important and sometimes challenging conversations about the type of social justice work that best fits your community, and then mapped power and available resources to discern where to focus efforts for the greatest possible impact.
