Jewish Social Justice Roundtable is a network of 47 Jewish organizations working to elevate social justice to the center of Jewish life and to advance an explicitly Jewish framework in the pursuit of social justice.
Roundtable members believe that Jewish social justice means addressing root causes of injustice from a Jewish perspective through organizing, advocacy, service learning and education. Roundtable organizations work on diverse, sometimes overlapping, issues at the local, state, national or international level.
The Roundtable builds strategic collaborations to advance social justice. By coordinating on issues and building long-term partnerships, the group has a greater impact collectively than each organization has individually. As a result, social justice is an emerging and strong pillar of Jewish Life in the 21st Century.
Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah is supporting a planning process, coordinated by the JSJR, aimed at identifying possible areas for collaborative activity among JSJR members that will strengthen the Jewish educational components of their work with professional staff, volunteers, and program participants.
