• Learn, Get Involved & Take Action this Martin Luther King Jr. Day

    In August of 1963, Jews marched on Washington in solidarity with the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. and 250,000 others. This peaceful demonstration, inspired by King’s dream, brought together people of different races, genders and religions. Jews knew then that racial justice is a Jewish issue.
