Green New Deal for Housing


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.

Downloadable Guide: “Sukkot and Housing Justice”

“Sukkot and Housing Justice 5784” is a downloadable guide to help us explore issues of housing justice during Sukkot. It includes Jewish sources from the Torah, the Prophets, and the Talmud examining the intersections of Sukkot and housing justice. The sources are meant to be used as a “grab bag” — in other words, use the ones that resonate with you and leave behind the ones you do not connect with. Many of the sources also include guiding questions to help you understand and dive deeper into what the text is trying to say.
