Housing, Homelessness & Hunger

As Reform Jewish women, we take pride in our advocacy on behalf of the most vulnerable among us. We know that we are only as strong as the weakest in our society. We know that to be the best possible advocates, we must speak on behalf of those whose voices are quieted by the strains of hunger, homelessness, and poverty. We are committed to ending these scourges in our modern society and support both governmental action and community-based efforts to bring economic justice to all.
