Maryland Youth Justice Working Group Meeting

Maryland State

Jewish sacred texts teach us that the world was created with both justice and mercy. Here in Maryland, children who are charged with certain crimes are sentenced as if they were adults. That is neither just nor merciful. Join JUFJ's youth justice working group as we discuss the campaign to pass the Youth Equity and Safety (YES) Act.

Sine Dayenu 2024 Celebration!

Maryland State
Lawyer's Mall
100 State Cir, Annapolis, MD

Sine Die is Latin for “adjourning without a future day,” and Dayenu, the title of an important Passover song, means “it would have been enough” — at JUFJ, we combine the two! As we prepare to celebrate at “Sine Dayenu,” we remind ourselves that each victory that we and our partners achieve in Annapolis is a necessary but not sufficient step toward collective liberation. Our work must continue until all of us are free.

Social Justice Seder: Let my people grow

Baltimore
Beth Am Synagogue
2501 Eutaw Place, Baltimore, MD

This year’s Seder, “Let my people grow,” will explore the fight for youth justice and the campaign to let all of Maryland’s children, and their children, and their children’s children break the chains of the criminal legal system and live in freedom.
