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.
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.

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.
