Civic Engagement

Our Social Action Committee is taking part in the non-partisan Civic Engagement Campaign of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism called  Civic Engagement: Every Synagogue Counts; Every Vote Counts. The campaign seeks to bring the full force of the Movement to bear by empowering all people to exercise their right to vote and ensuring that Jewish voices are present in the public square, regardless of party or politics.

Given Judaism’s respect for the fundamental rights of others and equality, and our Movement’s historic support for civil rights and our own synagogue’s previous commitment to equal rights, on August 14, 2018, the JRC BOT approved a resolution opposing the proposed constitutional amendment requiring North Carolina citizens present unspecified photo ID to vote. 

As part of our civic engagement work, we are hosting a series of non partisan voter engagement events at Judea: at Taking Care of Business events, select Religious School dates, and other events. Please stop by to check your voter registration, update it if necessary; complete absentee ballot applications for yourself or college aged kids, to get information about what’s on the ballot this November and early voting options and learn about ways you can engage.

We will reach out to all congregants by phone with information after the High Holy Days.  If you would like to participate in JRC’s Civic Engagement work, please sign up here for voter engagement tables or email and co-chairs Leslie Norber and Marian Abernathy will respond.
