Nashville Jewish Social Justice Roundtable sets agenda for 2018

Posted on: December 30th, 2017 by tgregory

The Nashville Jewish Social Justice Roundtable (JSJRN) is a recently organized progressive Jewish voice within the broader Nashville Jewish community committed to exploring and supporting solutions that advance the principles of democratic pluralism, religious freedom and social and economic justice on the national, state and local levels. Our work reflects the profound historic commitment of the American Jewish community to help develop and sustain a world better than the one we were brought into. We believe it is the responsibility of members of the Jewish community to help protect, preserve and promote a just American society by standing strong in support of social and economic justice issues.

The core beliefs and adopted positions of the Nashville Jewish Social Justice Roundtable are informed by Jewish values and reflect the philosophic pillars of Judaic morality.  We activate our organizational goals through information sharing, occasional action calls to communicate with public officials, and periodic educational forums.  In 2018, our membership will be offered opportunities to involve themselves in advocacy centered on criminal justice, poverty reduction, healthcare and immigration reform. 

Members of the Jewish community are encouraged to consider joining the JSJRN by signing up at www.JSJRnashville.org.  For additional information, contact co-chairs Avi Poster (aviposter4@gmail.com) or Irwin Venick (IVenick@aol.com). •
