Praying with our feet and taking action

July 9, 2021

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel famously claimed he was “praying with his feet” while marching with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for justice, equality, and civil rights. At the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA), we are praying with our feet by marching to the U.S. Capitol at the No Fear: A Rally in Solidarity with the Jewish People and against antisemitism, and by advocating for candidates and policies that align with our Jewish and Democratic values.

Join us at the No Fear: A Rally in Solidarity with the Jewish People rally in Washington, D.C., where JDCA Board Chair Ron Klein will deliver remarks calling on all Americans to condemn and take action against antisemitism wherever it may occur. We’ll be marching in solidarity with other national Jewish organizations, including the AJC, ADL, and NCJW. Click here or on the button below to get more information on the rally and to march with us.

We’re also marching with our feet to elect Democrats who share our values, and help Democrats maintain and expand their House majority. That’s why JDCA endorsed Shontel Brown in the OH-11 Democratic primary. Brown is the only elected official running in the race and has the leadership and experience necessary to deliver for the people of OH-11. Brown shares our Jewish and Democratic values on a wide range of issues, including access to affordable, quality health care, taking action to end gun violence, protecting our democracy, ensuring equity and justice for all, and supporting – not politicizing – the U.S. relationship with Israel. Early voting started this week, and so did our campaign to elect Shontel Brown. Help mobilize Jewish voters in OH-11 by clicking the button below to chip in any amount to support JDCA PAC’s efforts today.

Join JDCA for a special members briefing on Tuesday, July 13 at 3:30pm to get the facts on the political leanings and public opinion of the American Jewish electorate. We’ll be joined by leading pollster Jim Gerstein who will provide exclusive analysis and data on the Jewish vote. Click here or below to sign up.

Thank you for your continued support of JDCA. We’re grateful for your partnership and commitment to our Jewish and Democratic values.

Shabbat Shalom,

Hon. Ron Klein,
Board Chair, Jewish Democratic Council of America
