the golem was created from clay with the word 'truth' ('emet') written on its forehead. we use its image to make ourselves visible as individual pieces of mud, collectively activated and empowered to protect our friends, loved ones, and neighbors.
may we be golems for our time. may we tirelessly pursue truth and seek justice against oppression of all forms.
we stand in solidarity with all jews, acknowledging in particular jews of color and queer jews who are so often left out from our conversations and narratives.
we stand with immigrants, refugees, migrants, women, lgbtqi people, incarcerated people, disabled people, non-neurotypical people, people of low socioeconomic status, all people of color, and people of all religions.
