Save the Date! New York Care Congress on June 3rd!

Since July, JFREJ has been engaged in on-the-ground organizing as part of the visionary Caring Across Generations Campaign--a bold new national movement to transform long-term care in the U.S. and to ensure quality care and a dignified quality of life for all of us. As part of this movement, JFREJ and Domestic Workers United are joining a growing coalition of organizations and individuals who have a stake in changing the way we care. Together, we will will be holding a New York Care Congress on June 3rd.

JFREJ honors Adrienne Rich (z''l)

With deep sorrow, we mourn the passing of Adrienne Rich (z"l), a beloved friend, mentor, unflinching supporter, and inspiration to so many at JFREJ. Adrienne was honored at our 2007 Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer Risk-Taker Awards. Below is the video and text of Adrienne's acceptance speech, and the citation presented to her at the ceremony. May her memory be for a blessing.

JFREJ Member Publishes a History of the New Jewish Agenda!

Dear Friends,

I'm a long-time JFREJ member - most often seen in the annual Purimspiels - and I'm about to publish Justice, Justice Shall You Pursue: A History of New Jewish Agenda. I want to let the JFREJ network know about this upcoming book and ask for your help to spread the word about this crucial 1980's Jewish activist history.
