T

he National Conference on Jewish Affairs supports the rights and safety of the Jewish people in America, Israel and around the world by providing strong Jewish leadership to respond to and counter the growing, orchestrated demonizing of Israel, Jewry and America. An umbrella organization uniting active Jewish leaders and groups across America, NCJA was formed to give voice to those who want to express support for

and act on behalf of justice for Jews, Israel and Zionism. NCJA asserts the right of the Jewish people to the land of Israel based on history, religion and international law. We demand an end to the funding of the culture of hate, which sabotages the development of a true and lasting peace in the Middle East. NCJA works with Americans who share our commitment to defend our country and our people, recognizing that a strong America means a strong Israel and that an America proud of its liberty is a strong example to the world. NCJA supports Jewish students on campus, focusing on defending the rights of students and faculty to study, pursue research, articulate arguments and learn in an open intellectual, environment, free of physical and intellectual intimidation. NCJA works for the security of the United States and to protect the U.S. Constitution and to restore the pride and moral confidence of those Jews proud of their Jewish-American heritage. •

T

he Nashville Jewish Social Justice Roundtable (NJSJR) is an independent, non-partisan Jewish voice for progressive views on social justice issues including poverty, affordable housing, education, mass incarceration, employment and voting rights primarily focused on local and state concerns. Formed in 2016 and open to all members of the Jewish community, the NJSJR stands on the Jewish moral values of mishpat (justice for all); tzedakah (social justice); gemilut hesedim (acts of loving kindness) and rahamim (compassion for those in need). Our mission is to advocate in support of solutions to problems that will advance the principles of democratic pluralism, religious freedom and economic justice. When appropriate, NJSJR takes positions on specific social

justice issues and encourages its members to advocate for those positions by contacting civic leaders and others via email and telephone, being sure to let them know that the opinion expressed is from this Nashville Jewish organization. At other times, NJSJR will join with groups in the broader Nashville community to strengthen advocacy for social justice issues. NJSJR also sponsors membership meetings to educate its members and the larger Jewish community about timely concerns. Over time NJSJR plans to affiliate with national Jewish social justice organizations to better educate its members and the greater Nashville Jewish community on national issues of specific local and state concern. As NJSJR is primarily concerned about local and state social justice issues, it does not address issues involving Israel or the Middle East. Anyone interested in joining or learning more about NJSJR can contact the group by email at jsjrnashville@gmail. com or call Avi Poster at (615) 414-2396 or Irwin Venick at (615) 390-6689. â&#x20AC;˘
