Civic Engagement

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.

Civic Engagement Co-Chairs:
Amy Katz and Jenna Shaifer

A Partnership

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.
