BJ is a sanctuary congregation unequivocally committed to racial justice, economic justice, and environmental justice. We root our action in the social justice values of our Jewish tradition and text. We engage meaningfully with our neighbors of all faiths in New York City. We learn from one another and honor our diverse stories and experiences. We build relationships through individual and community dialogue and conversation. We concern ourselves with the needs of the BJ community, the Jewish community, and the city at large.
