Rabbi Yitzchak taught that “A ruler is not to be appointed unless the community is consulted.”
— Babylonian Talmud Berachot 55a
The Jewish sage, Hillel, taught us that we cannot separate ourselves from the community. When we participate in local elections, we take responsibility for ensuring that our elected leaders represent our values and we strengthen our connection to the larger community. That’s why we started the Jews United for Justice Campaign Fund: to help elect leaders in DC who will fight for our shared values.
Mazel Tov to all of our 2022 endorsed candidates!
We are proud to have supported an amazing slate of candidates in DC’s elections in 2022. Whether they won or lost, we know that all of them are going on to do amazing work for justice in DC.
As Jews, we know that every vote is sacred, just as every person is sacred. Every single one of us is entitled to a say in our democracy. We are so proud to be part of a powerful local progressive movement in DC and Maryland.
