Join us on December 21 as we say No to Islamophobia, No to racism, Yes to justice. Jews standing against Islamophobia and racism invite you to join us as we rekindle our commitment to justice in cities across the country and mark Chanukah.
On December 21, in cities and towns across the country, we will gather to stand up and continue to fight back. Now, more than ever, we must pledge to challenge injustice and build a society rooted in love and dignity for all people and communities. As we raise our candles, which together make a menorah, we will read aloud the commitments, including:
We refuse to be silent about anti-Muslim and racist hate speech and hate crimes. We condemn state surveillance of the Muslim community. We fight anti-Muslim profiling and racial profiling in all its forms. We call for an end to racist policing #SayHerName#BlackLivesMatter. We honor indigenous rights and support the resistance led by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to protect their land and water.
Travel Tuesday: The Cronut isn’t the only reason to visit pastry genius Dominique Ansel’s New York City bakery. Ansel hits a home run for chocolate
lovers with his “Mini-Me Cake” (photo). Four different textures of
chocolate—mousse, sponge, ganache and miniature meringues—combine in a
mix of flavors and textures. “We use 66% Valrhona chocolate, and it is
one of our best sellers,” says Ansel.
