Join us for our next Community-Building and Education Team meeting to brainstorm new ways to get the Montgomery County community involved in JUFJ. Everyone is welcome!
Ever wonder why we elect judges? Or what the state's attorney's relationship to the police is? Baltimore City's court system is one of the most opaque mysteries of our political landscape. Come join us for "Civics Kibitz 5: Courts, Clerks, and Judges" to dig into how our City's justice system works (or doesn't).
Purim is a joyful Jewish holiday that commemorates the story of Queen Esther, who used her power to help her community during challenging times. Every year on (or near) Purim, JUFJ activists deliver mishloach manot, sweet gifts to our Maryland state legislators, along with a reminder of what our legislative priorities are for this year's General Assembly session. But we can't make this sweet delivery without your help.
This Sukkot, we're imagining a DC where everyone has access to housing and where we keep our planet safe and beautiful for everyone who lives on it — and we're fighting for that future! Join JUFJ, Sunrise DC, and Councilmember Janeese Lewis George (in a sukkah!) to learn more about the Green New Deal for Housing bill, and how you can help build a more sustainable, affordable DC.
Join JUFJers from across Maryland to schmooze, celebrate Sukkot, and build community, with music and singing led by Cantor Rosalie Will. Whether you're just joining JUFJ's statewide work, or you've been involved for years, everyone is welcome! This event will be held in person at Columbia Jewish Congregation (5885 Robert Oliver Place, Columbia).
