Rothschild Social Justice Institute

The Temple heeds the prophetic call for tikkun olam through the Rothschild Social Justice Institute. Named in honor of The Temple’s esteemed Civil Rights leader Rabbi Jacob M. Rothschild, the Rothschild Institute seeks to affect positive change on the local level and beyond concerning ten broad societal issues of our time: Anti-Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking, Environment and Climate Change, Sensible Gun Safety, Poverty and Homelessness, LGBTQ Inclusivity and Equality, Jewish-Muslim Relations, Racial Justice, Women’s Rights, Public Education, and Refugee Resettlement.

We act on these issues collaboratively as Temple Connect small groups headed by the leaders below. For more information or to join a small group, please email the leader of the group in which you are interested.
