Tzedek Chicago

We're putting justice on the agenda

Welcome to Tzedek Chicago!

We’re a values-based Jewish congregation that draws 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.

Gone but Not Forgotten quilting circle

quiltTzedek Chicago will be hosting a Quilting Circle for the “Gone But Not Forgotten” quilt project on Tuesday, June 7, 6:00 – 9:00 pm at Grace Place, 637 S. Dearborn, Chicago. GBNF is a community quilting project, documenting the names and lives of the over 140 people have been killed by the Chicago Police or while in police custody since 2006.

Over the last year, more than 150 individuals have participated in combination quilting circles/peace circles across Chicago. In partnership with grassroots groups, religious organizations, art spaces and schools, these circles have been sewing together the memories of those lost to police violence, while discussing questions of transformative justice, police accountability, and community safety.

No quilting experience is necessary! We have a maximum of 25 participants, so if you would like to join the circle, please register below now! Click here for more information and to register.
