Rabbi Yitzhchak taught: “A ruler is not to be appointed unless the community is consulted.” (Babylonian Talmud Berachot 55a)
The Jewish sage, Hillel, taught us that we cannot separate ourselves from the community. When we participate in local elections, we take responsibility for ensuring that our leaders represent our values and we strengthen our connection to the larger community.
Join Jews United for Justice and synagogues across Montgomery County on Zoom for a non-partisan conversation on what’s at stake in the upcoming local primary elections. We’ll walk through which elected offices are on the ballot, who is running, why these offices matter, when the elections are happening, where your new districts are, and how you can be part of shaping Maryland and Montgomery County and making concrete improvements in the lives of everyone in our community.
