Passover Reflections: Fighting for Immigrant Justice

Our history as Jews is the history of oppression and migration, but also of resistance. From the small subversive acts of the midwives in Egypt defying Pharaoh's orders, to the Exodus of the Jews led by Moses, resistance is in our blood. From the creation of the Workmen's Circle as a mutual aid society, to Hannah Szenes's bravery rescuing Jews in World War II, we have resisted.

Our Jagged Edges: Why I Organize for Immigrants Rights

Beginning this month, we will invite members of BWC's community to guest write blog posts, highlighting the diverse programs and campaigns we are working on. As October comes to an end, we are launching an ongoing solidarity campaign with Cosecha, a movement fighting for respect, dignity and permanent protection for all immigrants in the United States. Shule alum and young adult member Emily Bloch reflects on her BWC roots, the work she does as an organizer with Cosecha, connections to Sukes, and the importance of this upcoming election.

Making Connections: Rosh Hashanah D'var 2016

 “If roads are unconnected we must make a path.” This is what I ask of you today. Make an effort to understand others’ experiences, and then build paths. Make connections. Make people feel welcome. Speak up when you see or hear injustice. Reach out to those who might seem different from you. You might just find out that they’re not so different, after all. - Sarah Chapple-Sokol D'var, Rosh Hashanah 2016
