More than 1,300 Jewish leaders and community members from 46 states, Washington DC, and Democrats abroad have come together to launch #JewsForWarren. As the 2020 election approaches, we, a collection of Jews from varied backgrounds, are signing this letter to pledge our support for Senator Elizabeth Warren in her race for the presidency.
Senator Warren mirrors our values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) in her plans, reflects our people's love for learning and growing, and exemplifies a leader who's in it for the collective good.
As Rabbis, Cantors, Jewish community professionals, educators, activists and organizers, we added our names in support of Senator Warren’s candidacy because we believe that she is the strongest candidate to defeat President Trump, the best equipped to serve as President, and most able to bring our country back together again and help us move toward a better future.
We share this today as a public declaration of our commitment to work in support of Senator Warren’s candidacy, and of the brighter future that it foretells. Inspired by the words of Pirkei Avot (Ethics of our Ancestors) “You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it”, we shall continue working to make our nation live up to the progressive values that we hold dear, and we call upon our Jewish family to join us in doing so and in support Elizabeth Warren for President.
