Tirdof: New York Jewish Clergy for Justice is a project of T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights and Jews For Racial & Economic Justice (JFREJ Community). Tirdof is the home for Jewish clergy to organize with our neighbors and allies for a New York City with freedom, opportunity, & dignity for all. Tirdof is a supportive home for learning, organizing, and action for a powerful and committed cohort of Jewish clergy committed to pursuing justice in New York City.

It is a place for rabbis, cantors, and clergy students in formation to learn about human rights and key racial and economic justice issues, develop organizing skills, build community with like-minded peers, and leverage a powerful moral voice in pivotal local campaigns.

Through strong commitment to the values of justice, truth and peace-- דין אמת ושלום (Pirkei Avot 1:18)-- Tirdof seeks to build power among local Jewish clergy who are committed to human rights and social justice, to build a more vibrant culture of connection and organizing among our most powerful moral leaders.
