T’ruah brings a rabbinic voice and the power of the Jewish community to protecting and advancing human rights in North America, Israel, and the occupied Palestinian territories.

We do this by training and mobilizing our network of 1,800 rabbis and cantors, together with their communities, to bring our Jewish values to life through strategic and meaningful action.

Our Mission

T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights brings together rabbis and cantors from all streams of Judaism, together with all members of the Jewish community, to act on the Jewish imperative to respect and advance the human rights of all people. Grounded in Torah and our Jewish historical experience and guided by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we call upon Jews to assert Jewish values by raising our voices and taking concrete steps to protect and expand human rights in North America, Israel, and the occupied Palestinian territories.

Our Strategies

  • We organize rabbis, cantors and their communities to make an impact through specific human rights campaigns.
  • We train rabbinical and cantorial students and rabbis and cantors to be powerful human rights leaders.
  • We amplify the voices of rabbis and cantors on the pressing human rights concerns of our time.
