Let Justice Well Up
Mayyim Hayyim is thrilled to announce year two of “Let Justice Well Up,” an initiative by and for Jewish women of color, to provide a sense of welcome, empowerment, and connection as well as healing and support within the Jewish community.
One of our core values is Petichut – openness and inclusivity. Mayyim Hayyim strives to be inclusive of all who wish to learn and/or immerse. Another is Ahavat Yisrael – love of the Jewish people. We honor and cherish the differences among the Jewish people. We know, however, that we are not reaching the Black community, Sephardi/Mizrahi Jews, indigineous Jews, and other
women of color to the extent that they are represented in the community.
Let Justice Well Up has two components. Learn more and find out how to participate below.
