Rabbi Jonah Pesner tells the inspiring story of the historic decision by the Reform Movement to launch the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism nearly sixty years ago, at the peak of the Civil Rights Movement. He lays out the compelling challenges we continue to confront as we seek a world of wholeness, justice and peace, given the rise in anti-Semitism, white supremacy and bigotry. He deals with acts of violence against Jews and other minorities, racial disparities, the demonization of migrants and refugees, voting rights, mass incarceration, and more. He describes the challenges that vulnerable communities are confronting, and he also reflects on the political polarization in our culture and the need to honor diverse perspectives and find common ground around shared values. Finally, he offers concrete strategies for making a difference.
