Every Congregation Counts. Every Vote Counts.

Am Shalom has joined with the Reform Movement’s Religious Action Center to encourage civic engagement. This nationwide, non-partisan effort is designed to promote and maintain Jews’ historic and enthusiastic participation in the American electoral process. Get involved this election season! 

Rabbi Yitzhak taught that "A ruler is not to be appointed unless the community is first consulted" (Babylonian Talmud Berachot 55a). Clearly, voting and participating in our democracy are Jewish values.
