Tzedek Chicago
https://tzedekchicago.org/
Chicago, IL

We are an intentional congregation rooted in core values that guide the life of our community. We draw our inspiration from Torah’s central story of liberation, from the voices of prophets who courageously spoke truth to power, from the chutzpah of ancient rabbis who responded to the reality of exile with a vision of healing and righteousness and from countless generations of rebels, radicals, revolutionaries and rabble rousers – Jewish and non-Jewish alike – who challenged the status quo in order to create a better, fairer and more equitable world.

Our services will include our unique mix of prayer, action, music, poetry, learning and inspiration and look forward to seeing new and familiar faces as we continue to build our Tzedek community.

http://www.tikkunolamchavurah.org/ & https://fringeshavurah.com/
Philadelphia, PA

Our services are a combination of traditional and original liturgy, along with a rich musical experience, and social justice-centered talks and Torah study. We create a spiritual home for politically-engaged Jews who want to do the deep personal introspection of the High Holidays within the understanding that our lives unfold in a wider world. As a community we believe in radical inclusion, and welcome your full Jewish self – questions, doubts, connection to Jewish values and a search for new answers.
