To be a Jew is to stand up for what is just and right. T'ruah mobilizes our network of 1800 rabbis and cantors, and tens of thousands of Jewish community members to protect the human rights of all people in North America, Israel, and the occupied territories.
Your gift helps us to end slavery and trafficking in the United States, to stand up to discrimination against our Muslim neighbors, to end prolonged solitary confinement in US prisons, and to advocate for the State of Israel to protect the human rights of Palestinians and Israelis, Jews and non-Jews, citizens and refugees.
Thanks to a gift from a generous donor, all donations made before September 30 will be doubled--up to a total of $45,000.
