Congregation-based Organizing: A Cautionary Tale

By Jane Ramsey

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2007

The author acknowledges that congregation-based organizing can be powerful and transformational. However, this model has potential for promoting social injustice. Many exciting organizing models across the country are bringing change, creating coalitions and mobilizing young, old, affiliated and unaffiliated Jews. The author cautions, however, that it is critical that we choose the best features from many organizing models and use our resources on behalf of those who need it most.
