The JALSA Toolbox

  • JALSA asks our members, both affiliated and unaffiliated Jews, and those outside the Jewish community to take personal responsibility for improving our society by advocating with public officials on legislative proposals, using the tools of grassroots community organizing to act on issues, and filing amicus briefs in court cases.
