As the violence in Israel and Gaza continues, we affirm that we are stronger together.
At a moment when our interfaith relationships are facing unprecedented strain, we are reminded that it is precisely those relationships built on solidarity and trust that have sustained us in working to build a more resilient, inclusive democracy for all. We invite you to join alongside us and affirm the shared principles of our interfaith community.
Now more than ever, we must join together to affirm our shared values.
Many in our communities at home in the U.S. are hurting. Our Jewish, Muslim, Israeli-American, and Palestinian-American siblings are working to process the grief and distress of their communities amid rising instances of faith, ethnic, and racially motivated hate here at home. We recognize the challenge at this time of moving forward together as a multi-faith movement to advance our shared vision of a welcoming, diverse community.
But we can’t wait. Now is the time for us to reaffirm our commitments to one another and imagine a way forward to continue our essential work of achieving democracy together. We invite you to sign our pledge affirming our shared Interfaith Community Principles.
