T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights

T’ruah brings the Torah’s ideals of human dignity, equality, and justice to life by empowering rabbis and cantors to be moral voices and to lead Jewish communities in advancing democracy and human rights for all people in the United States, Israel, and the occupied Palestinian territories.

Cry aloud; do not be silent. Lift up your voice like a shofar.

— Isaiah 58:1
