When the community is in trouble, a person should not say, "I will go to my house and I will eat and drink
and be at peace with myself.” – Babylonian Talmud

2020 Civic Engagement Campaign

Beth El Hebrew Congregation In partnership with 
The Religious Action Center and the Center for Common Ground

 

On November 3 the American people will have the chance to shape the future of our nation by participating in the 2020 election. The right to vote that we cherish as American citizens calls on each of us to take part in the democratic process, whether by voting on Election Day or casting an absentee ballot beforehand. 

Unfortunately, too many Americans are denied the right to choose leaders who reflect their beliefs or represent their communities because of systemic efforts to suppress their ability to vote. The reality offends America’s democratic principles and our values as a Jewish community. 

This year, Beth El Hebrew Congregation in Alexandria, Virginia is proud to join in sacred partnership with the Center for Common Ground and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism in a campaign to put our Jewish values in action to help those whose votes are suppressed and whose voices are silenced. 

Our 2020 Civic Engagement Campaign is a non-partisan, 501c(3)-compliant voter engagement effort built around the principle that everyone who is eligible to vote in our nation should be able to cast a ballot and have their vote counted.

We invite you to join us in this holy work.   Click here for the form to join this effort.
