On Sunday, February 8, members of the Westchester community are invited to an advocacy training run in conjunction with the Union for Reform Judaism and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism.

During the daylong training, participants will have a chance to understand some of the global, national and local issues concerning us and how to advocate effectively both as Reform Jews and as citizens. Finally, synagogue leaders will have the opportunity to network and share ideas and resources regarding social justice initiatives. RJV leaders will be participating as facilitators of some of the issue-focused programming.

The event is open to the Reform Jewish community – perfect for congregational leadership, clergy, social action chairs, teens or any congregant interested in our collective work of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and launching local initiatives.
