Take the Pledge

You may already have heard about a Jewish community response to the recent suicides of six young people, victimized because they were gay or thought to be gay. It’s called Do Not Stand Idly By: A Jewish Community Pledge to Save Lives (see earlier article here). We’ve signed it as a tangible way of letting as many young people as possible know that our community will not tolerate homophobic bullying (Boulder Jewish News has also signed it as an organization).

Please join us by adding your name to this important effort. The publicity that this initiative has already received is unprecedented. Young people are hearing about this, not only in the Jewish community, but in other faith communities. What we are doing here is lighting a candle, not just cursing the darkness.

You can sign the Pledge here: http://www.jewishcommunitypledge.org. Thank you.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
