Throughout 2020, Uri L’Tzedek, in partnership with Torat Chayim, conducted a comprehensive and wide-ranging anti-bigotry campaign to combat latent racism among leaders and institutions in the Orthodox community. The campaign had several phases to it throughout the year. Phase 1 of the campaign was simply signing a pledge to never remain silent when observing racist behavior in the Orthodox community. Phase 2 encompassed eight webinars to learn about the extent of the problem, engage with peers, and learn best practices about how to address prejudice bubbling within our own communities.
Through education and action, we hope to make racism a thing of the past among Orthodox Jews in America!
