Reform Jewish Voice of New York State (RJV) is our collective voice for Jewish social justice advocacy in New York. Our mission is to promote state legislation and governmental actions that embody the principles of the Reform Jewish movement through education on the critical issues facing our state and advocacy in Albany and local legislative districts. RJV is modeled on the nationwide efforts of the Commission on Social Action and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism.
The work of RJV is directed by a Steering Committee of committed volunteers from across the state. We are currently seeking nominations for new Steering Committee members. You may nominate yourself or another individual with a passion for social justice work who can help RJV grow as an effective voice for Reform Judaism and advocate for social justice. If you wish to nominate another person, please discuss this with your proposed nominee and assess his/her willingness to serve on the committee before submitting his/her nomination.
The Steering Committee is composed of up to 18 members serving three-year terms. New members will begin their terms on November 1, 2015. (more…)
