July 2021 Tzedek Team Article

Cleaning streams, sending cards to seniors, and more!
There is much going on with the Tzedek team! Opportunities are popping up both in and outside our Kol Rinah community and we hope you will get involved. First, we are beginning One-on-One conversations with our congregants. Why? We believe that meaningful relationships are the key for building a movement for justice. This will take the form of one-on-one conversations (for approximately 30 minutes) in which we find out more about our members and what they care about. Stay tuned for a Tzedek member to contact you.
In the month of June our committee participated in a training led by JOIN (Jewish Organizing Institute and Network) that supports Jewish leaders in their pursuits of organizing for justice both inside and outside of the Jewish community. We will be using the organizing skills we are learning to build meaningful relationships and find out what our community cares most about.
Thanks to all writers and artists of all ages who are helping us send caring greeting cards to residents at Crown Center and Brentmoor. If you would like to help by writing five cards to seniors, you can pick them up and drop them off at Young Families events or at the NEW shul office!
