The mission of social justice is to mobilize our community, using Jewish principles of moral righteousness. We operate with respect for the diversity of opinions among our members, as well as respect for the inherent human dignity and worth of every human being.

Under the leadership of Elaine Goth-Merker, Social Justice has expanded its role to highlight and shine a light on three  issues this year  Immigrants Rights Initiative,  Racial Justice Initiative  and Antisemitism Initiative are recognized as being forefront for the committee and our community this year.
