Stand up for justice! Party with Your PJS
A team for PROGRESSIVE JEWISH ALLIANCE
Social Justice has never been a hotter topic among young progressive Jews. Local issues such as immigrants’ rights, food justice, and environmental protection demand our energy and attention! This is a FUNdraiser and all proceeds from this event go directly to Progressive Jewish Alliance campaigns supporting critical local issues.

PJA is a new kind of Jewish organization, one that serves as a vehicle connecting Jews to the critical social justice issues of the day, to the life of the cities in which they live, and to the Jewish tradition of working for tikkun olam. We believe that to kvetch is human, to act…divine. We fight for economic justice by educating Jews about our obligation to stand with the working poor, and then we organize the Jewish community to join in campaigns to improve working conditions and secure a living wage for low-wage workers.
We work to promote understanding and tolerance by facilitating several tracks of Muslim-Jewish dialogue. We work to ensure Jewish continuity through our two-year Jeremiah Fellowship, an innovative project that trains twenty-somethings to be the next generation of Jewish social justice leaders. And we build a vibrant, creative and engaged community through education programs and quarterly holiday events that explore the intersection of art, culture and politics. Check out PJA's website for more information about specific campaigns.(http://www.pjalliance.org/).
