Where there is hate for others, there is hate for us. Moments of scarcity drive feelings of vulnerability. As uncomfortable as it might be to display our Jewishness outwardly, it is an authentic step towards reconciliation with ourselves and society. We believe Jewish security depends on a just society for all people. We must have the courage to stand up and speak out when we witness injustice because our interdependence is not a choice.
Just as our liberation is entwined with all humanity, especially marginalized groups nationally and throughout the world, we must also recognize our own unique power to actualize change.
Art has the power to provoke dialogue and conversation. Symbols and imagery evoke and inspire emotional connections in a way that words fall short.
