Who are We?

Tekiah aims to embrace the full spectrum and diversity of the Jewish community: young and old, secular and religious, Jews by birth and Jews by choice, queer Jews and straight Jews, Ashkenazim, Sephardim and Mizrahim. What we share is our commitment to fighting for justice and the inspiration we draw from Judaism's rich traditions of activism and organizing.

 

Our Mission

Tekiah is a membership organization that works on local issues of social, economic, and racial justice. We provide an opportunity for young people to be leaders as we mobilize Greater Boston's Jewish communities to effect systemic social change. Tekiah forges alliances and engages members through community organizing and popular education.

What is Tekiah?

Tekiah is an alliance of progressive Jewish activists, community organizers and lay leaders in Greater Boston, committed to mobilizing the Jewish community to work for a fundamental, systemic change in American society. Tekiah organizes around issues of local and global human rights and economic justice. The Hebrew word "tekiah" is chanted as part of the sounding of the Shofar during Rosh Hashana. Tekiah, like the blast of the shofar, aims to wake us up, and to call our attention to the world around us.
