Tune in to Services: What Are Reform Clergy Saying About Charlottesville?

Mans hands using a Mac laptop while sitting on a couch

In synagogues and communities across North America this Shabbat, rabbis, cantors, and other Jewish leaders will speak about and reflect upon the events in Charlottesville. Using the lens of our rich tradition, they’ll offer perspectives about what these events mean for us in the Jewish community – and for all Americans – as we move forward in these troubling times.

Tune in to see and hear how Reform leaders are addressing this critical and far-reaching issue – and please check back often as this list is a work in progress.
