What is the #JewishResistance?

How is the Jewish community effectively showing up for our partners in directly impacted communities, as well as Mizrahi Jews and Jews of Color in our own community? How can we call on New York political leaders to stand up to the administration and create real sanctuary, real safety, and real justice for all New Yorkerss? Broken windows policing puts all of our communities at risk - there is no sanctuary without police accountability. Our community is called right now to be the #JewishResistance of our time. Come learn about JFREJ's approach to these questions, and help us mobilize our community for upcoming actions in April: RiseUp4Ramarley4MLK on April 4th at 6pm, which commemorates the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. by demanding justice for Ramarley Graham, the unarmed teenager shot by the NYPD 5 years ago. Real safety and sanctuary requires an accountable NYPD. As a first step, all officers involved in Ramarley’s death must be held accountable. #JewishResistance: Seder in the Streets on April 13th. Come celebrate our 5777-year history of resistance through a creative, powerful ritual drawing the connections between the Jewish liberation story and our struggle for dignity and safety today. This will be held in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. Exact location provided upon RSVP.
