New from T’ruah
T’ruah denounces today’s terror attack against Israelis in Tel Aviv. There can be no justification for brutal attacks against civilians at any time. Every religion prohibits attempted murder or harm of a creation in the divine image.
We pray for complete healing, both of body and spirit, for all those wounded and their families.
We call on Israeli politicians to refrain from using this individual act to incite more hatred or to advance political goals during this election season.
Along with the nation of Israel and people around the world, we pray for justice and peace, for a time when all people will be able to "sit under their vines and their fig trees, and no one will give them reason to fear." (Micah 4:4)
On January 12th, reports surfaced that asylum seekers' rooms at Holot Prison have no heat, and their space heaters are being confiscated by prison guards. People who survived abuse and torture are huddled together under blankets and freezing in Israel, where they fled seeking refuge. Learn more and take action.
Today, we—as rabbis, cantors, and community leaders—announce the launch of T’ruah’s campaign for mass incarceration reform.
Why is this a Jewish Issue?
