Jews of Color Count

Jews of Color Count


We believe that all Jewish People of Color count and deserve to be treated with dignity.

Frequent and consistent experiences of racism acted upon Jews of Color in Jewish spaces demonstrate the urgent need for diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice work – regardless of how many Jews of Color exist or where they live. Any exclusion, discrimination, or racism that Jews experience in communal spaces is not simply unfortunate, it’s unacceptable.

We believe in a vision of a multiracial, multiethnic Jewish community that is loving, caring, and equitable, where all of us can thrive, be free, and live in dignity.

“Jews of Color count — not because of our numbers, but simply because of our divinity and humanity.”
