A small group of activists recognized that our Jewish community's progressive voice had become quiet on important domestic policy issues. We formed an action organization for positive change, and evolved into a vibrant agency for social action.

JSPAN Annual Meeting - "We Shall Move Mountains: Faith as an Engine for Realizing Social Justice"

Jewish Social Policy Action Network (JSPAN) and Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) proudly present "We Shall Move Mountains: Faith as an Engine for Realizing Social Justice," a significant talk by Rabbi Steve Gutow, CEO of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.

A lawyer, Reconstructionist rabbi, and activist, Steve Gutow became the CEO and President of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs in 2006. JCPA is the coordinating body for 16 national Jewish agencies and 125 local Jewish community relations councils and federations. Steve served on the Economic Recovery Task Force of the President's Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and sits on the Jewish Social Justice Roundtable, a coalition of Jewish social justice organizations building a unified movement that is part of the national Jewish agenda. He blogs in the Huffington Post. In 2012 Steve traveled to Indonesia, Jordan, Israel and the West Bank with imams, rabbis, and ministers. He will arrive in Philadelphia after a 10-day trip to Iran.
