A Response to Family Separation at the Border

And several effective action steps

“We too are horrified, heartbroken, and outraged by the intentional choice to tear apart children from the embrace of their parents and families. Their cries enter our broken hearts, and we refuse to ‘stand idly by,’ because we know that silence is tantamount to complicity in this unspeakable crime against humankind.” Click here to read Temple Israel’s full response to family separation at the border, along with several effective action steps, powerful mitzvot we can perform to immediately respond.

Temple Israel of Boston has been an integral part of Boston Jewish life for over 160 years. We are a warm, urban congregation where all are welcome to live Judaism together through discovery, dynamic spirituality, and righteous impact.
