I am joining Keshet and over 100 Jewish organizations as a pro-equality person of faith in support of the Equality Act, which would update the Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Contact your senators via www.keshetonline.org/equalityact and urge them to pass this critical legislation. #EqualityAct #LGBTQRights


The Equality Act, which would ensure LGBTQ Americans have legal protections from discrimination, echoes core Jewish values.  Among them: [use one or all of the following]

  • Love your neighbor as yourself (V’ahavta L’reiacha Kamocha) – LGBTQ Americans should have the same rights as non-LGBTQ Americans.
  • Respect (Kavod) – Judaism teaches us to treat ourselves and others with respect, including the stranger. Respect is a feeling of regard for the rights, dignity, feelings, wishes, and abilities of others. 
  • Communal Responsibility (Kol Yisrael Arevim Zeh Bazeh) – The Jewish principle that “All Israel is responsible for one another” means each of us must take action and inspire others to create a community in which we can all take pride.

No one should have to live in fear of discrimination. Tell Congress to pass the #EqualityAct. Learn more and take action at www.keshetonline.org/equalityact


It’s time for Congress to pass the Equality Act and ensure no one is fired from their job, refused service at a business, or denied housing simply because of who they are or who they love. President Biden has promised to sign the #EqualityAct. Go to www.keshetonline.org/equalityact to learn more and take action. #LGBTQRights


No one should have to live in fear of discrimination. Congress must pass the #EqualityAct, a bill that would officially ban discrimination against #LGBTQ people in housing, health care, education, public accommodations, credit, jury selection, and all federally-funded services. Learn more and take action at www.keshetonline.org/equalityact.


The Equality Act will not only expand non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans but also fill key gaps in civil rights law for cisgender women, religious groups, and immigrants. President Biden is waiting for Congress to send him the #EqualityAct to sign. Go to www.keshetonline.org/equalityact to learn more and take action.
