Voices For Justice Committee

Tikkun Olam - Repair of the World – comes to life within the work of the Voices for Justice Committee (VFJ). Established in 2016, the mission of the VFJ is to engage the Congregation Shalom community in advocating for social justice issues in Milwaukee from a Jewish perspective.

Through VFJ’s interactions with other faith-based leaders and congregations, we have made connections with multiple organizations representing all faiths and diversities, locally and statewide. In all of these, Congregation Shalom is getting “a seat at the table”. In 2019, Congregation Shalom officially joined MICAH (Milwaukee Inner city Congregations Allied for Hope) and Brit Olam. MICAH consists of 35 congregations and other faith-based groups throughout the metro area, working together to advocate (and agitate!) for reforms in Criminal Justice, Lead in our drinking water, Immigration, Voting Rights, Gun Violence, and other issues. Brit Olam is a national collaboration of congregations focusing on Social Justice issues, under the leadership of the URJ’s Religious Action Center (RAC).

Future VFJ  activities will nurture these relationships and seek common ground to pursue Social Justice together.  Anyone interested in receiving information about the committee’s activities may click here to be added to the committee's email list.
