Am Tzedek

Am Tzedek: Isaians Pursuing Justice is Temple Isaiah’s organizing group. Made up of a core team of Temple Isaiah lay leaders, Am Tzedek is the umbrella under which Isaiah does all types of justice work partnering with One LA(IAF) and RAC-CA.

One LA-IAF is a broad-based organizing network made up of dues-paying member institutions. Temple Isaiah and other diverse religious, healthcare, schools and other non-profit institutions across LA County are committed to building relational power and exercising that power to strengthen our communities and bring about a more just society. We do this by:

  • Building strong relationships within and across our communities; 
  • Equipping our members with leadership and organizing skills; and
  • Acting powerfully together on concrete issues facing our communities.
