Jewish Community Organizations and Professionals

Rabbis and Jewish study programs across denominations in Israel and around the world are also participating. In Israel, for example, Beit Hillel, Attentive Spiritual Leadership is encouraging its 200 rabbis from around Israel to speak about the day and what can be done to encourage healthymachloket in Israeli society today. In the US, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA)’s Civility Initiative has reached out to its list of 2,000 rabbis encouraging them to partake in the day as well.  Rabbinic schools in the US, such as the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College also has made plans to commemorate the day. In addition, the religious Zionist organization, Torah Mitzion, plans to hold study and practice sessions in their Kollelim around the world. Plugta, which brings together ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel with other sectors of Israeli society, is also planning several study and discussion events to commemorate the day.
