B’nai Israel is a proud SEA Change Congregation. 
SEA Change means Study, Engage, Act, Change. B’nai Israel and Washington Hebrew Congregations in partnership with JOIN for Justice organized the first SEA Change cohort. The goal was to engage in meaningful conversations and critical education to become change agents addressing racial inequity in our congregational communities and in the broader community. Today, there are 10 SEA Change congregations across the DMV addressing racial equity issues based on our shared Jewish values.

As we move on to Action, SEA Change Congregations are partnering with three local organizations – AIM (Action in Montgomery) and JUFJ (Jews United for Justice), and IPL (Interfaith Power & Light).


JOIN US! AIM Relational Power & Climate Justice Working Session
When: Sunday October 15, 1:30-3:00 PM
Where: Here at B’nai Israel!
What: This is a great opportunity whether you’ve engaged with AIM already or are new to the effort. Together with other area congregations we will strategize around a real-world Maryland case study focused on influencing the distribution of historic levels of Federal funds in the DMV region to reduce climate emissions and make apartments and single-family homes more healthy, affordable, and safe.
