IKAR VOTES: 11/8/22

Voting is a social necessity and a moral obligation. It is one of our best tools to manifest our values in the public square.
Through our vote, we challenge the norms of a society that denigrates and degrades the image of God, that works to entrench power in the hands of the few at the expense of the many.
Through our vote, we lift up our vision of a just, fair and equitable society.
Through our vote, we affirm our commitment to engaging in the sacred and ceaseless work of repairing our collective. — R’ Sharon Brous

As our Rabbis have said time and time again, a person’s right to privacy is sacred. The life of the pregnant person takes precedence in our tradition. We believe that decisions about a person’s body and health belong in the hands of the individual, and not the U.S. Supreme Court.
