It's Your Turn: This Sunday, Help Defeat the "Marriage Amendment" with the Jewish Community

This is a guest post by Madeline Harms, an unaffiliated Jewish graduate student working with JCA to defeat the marriage amendment.

The Jewish Community is rallying to defeat the upcoming “Marriage Amendment” to the Minnesota Constitution that would restrict marriage to a man and a woman (despite an existing law that already restricts marriage in this way). The Minnesota Rabbinical Association, Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, Jewish Community Action, and most recently, the United Jewish Fund and Council of St. Paul have come out against the amendment.
Now it’s your turn.
Come to Adath Jeshurun synagogue on the afternoon of March 4th for a rabbi-led text study and interactive dialogue that will give you the tools you need to convince family, friends, colleagues, and community members to vote NO. In order to defeat the amendment, we need EVERYONE who believes that marriage is a fundamental human right to come to the polls this November and vote NO. We need your help to get them there.

What: “Just Vote No, Make History: Defeat the Marriage Amendment”

When: Sunday, March 4, 2012, 2:00-5:00pm

Where: Adath Jeshurun Congregation, 10500 Hillside Lane W, Minnetonka, MN

The event is organized by Jewish Community Action (JCA) and co-sponsored by Adath Jeshurun Keruv Committee and a variety of other local synagogues and Jewish communal organizations. For more information contact Adele Brown at [email protected] or 651.632.2184 or Charlie Nauen at 651.646.2217 or [email protected].
