Through Civic Engagement@Wise, Wise Temple provides an opportunity for congregants of all ages to live out their Jewish values by working together to influence systemic change.
CE@Wise focuses on societal concerns such as:
- increasing voter participation
- reducing gun violence
- criminal justice reform
- and securing reproductive rights for women
Our congregants register voters, participate in marches, lobby legislators, plan educational programs on social problems, and collect signatures to support pending legislation.
CE@Wise works in partnership with RAC Ohio, a network of Reform congregations that work together to affect systemic change locally and state-wide. RAC Ohio is part of the Religious Action Center, the social justice arm of the Union of Reform Congregations.
Wise Temple is a “Brit Olam” congregation. We have signed a covenant to confront injustice at its root.
