HANUKA ROCK! with JFREJ...
Join JFREJ, Communities United for Police Reform, and other allies from every New York borough in calling for justice for Eric Garner, Ramarley Graham, and countless other victims of police brutality, and for an end to “broken windows” policing.
On July 17th, Eric Garner, a 43 year old man from Staten Island with six children, was killed by NYPD officers. Eric Garner died because police used a chokehold, a dangerous maneuver that was banned by the NYPD over 20 years ago, to wrestle him to the ground after he had broken up a fight.
The NYPD must be held accountable for these deaths, and the Mayor and City Council must see that our communities will not rest until they are.

Join the Shalom Bayit: Justice for Domestic Workers Campaign for the Eldercare Dialogue Series. At each dialogue, we bring together communities of seniors and their families with communities of home care/elder care workers and domestic workers and their families because we believe quality jobs and quality care go hand in hand. We also uncover our shared values and aspirations for what elder care and elder care work should be, discuss strategies to address those challenges and lift up our values (e.g. quality jobs and quality care), and develop our base of workers, consumers, and families prepared and committed to participate in pilot worker and consumer training programs. In partnership with Domestic Workers United, Adhikaar, Damayan, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Central Synagogue, and B'nai Jeshurun's Aging in New York Hevra.
