The CSA Comes to Washington!

October 14, 2012
Welcome, CSA members! This weekend the Commission on Social Action, the social justice policy-making body of the Reform Jewish Movement, will join us from across North America in Washington, D.C. for a jam-packed weekend during which we will delve into issues that are core to the mission of the URJ. Members of the Commission will hear from experts on a variety of topics: from voter suppression to the status of Israeli Arabs, from education reform to health care reform, and from gun control to the implications for Israel as a result of the Arab Awakening. We'll even be spending a full afternoon parsing the nuances of religious liberty. The RAC staff is looking forward to learning from and with the members of the Commission, and we'll be sure to check back in with you throughout the next few days to report on what we've learned!
