Shomrey Mishpat Rabbis For Human Rights North America

Rating: 5 stars   1 review 2,566

Address:

266 West 37th Street Suite 803 New York NY 10018 USA

Mission:

The rabbinic call for human rights brings together rabbis and cantors from all streams of judaism, together with all members of the jewish community, to act on the jewish imperative to respect and advance the human rights of all people. Grounded in torah and our jewish historical experience and guided by the universal declaration of human rights, we call upon jews to assert jewish values by raising our voices and taking concrete steps to protect and expand human rights in north america, israel, and the occupied palestinian territories.

Programs:

We train rabbis and rabbinical students to be strong human rights leaders. Through our summer fellowship, a select cohort of rabbinical/cantorial students gain the experience and skills to be human rights leaders. Through our year-in-israel program, more than 60 students studying in jerusalem participate in monthly human rights experiences and reflection sessions. We run webinars and in-person seminars for rabbis to learn to write and place op-eds and to bring human rights issues to their communities.

Reviews for Shomrey Mishpat Rabbis For Human Rights North America

Rating: 5 stars

I traveled to Israel with RHR a couple of times, to volunteer in their planting of trees on both sides of the green line as well as to witness for myself what is happening there.I was educated by great leaders as well as parents who have lost children, mothers who stand up for justice, and many others who desire peace. RHR makes me feel proud to be Jewish because I know our highest principles are being upheld, and feel inspired to act for peace and justice.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being re-inspired that Judaism's highest, and deepest principles are being upheld by rabbis who really care how we act, both in Israel and in North America.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it more visible. make it more organized.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the rabbis' commitment to peace and justice at all personal costs.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing. dedicated. industrious truly cared about the people they were fighting for.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do publicity, hire legal aids to help on cases that dont have enough money. educate the public about what is going on, both in Israel/Palestine, as well as in the world (RHR North America is workinghard to publicize global slavery and trafficking

Ways to make it better...

more people knew about this organization. It is a too well kept secret!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not enough funds to organize volunteers

One thing I'd also say is that...

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
