tzedek georgia

Mission Statement

Jewish tradition teaches to speak up, judge righteously, and champion the poor and the needy (Prov 31:9). 

Guided by these values and the resolutions of the Union for Reform Judaism, Tzedek Georgia advocates the Georgia State legislature for human rights, equal rights, and justice or tzedek for all. Tzedek means righteousness or creating balanced power to ensure equal rights. We speak truth to power as we call for legislative actions which address the root causes of social and economic injustice while advancing religious tolerance and human dignity.
