The purpose of this organization is to create a group of self-identified Jewish families that would (1) have a collective voice in the current efforts to address anti-Semitism, racism, sexism and any forms of bias or hate in the Albany public schools (2) educate the community about Jewish history, culture and religion (3) ally with other parent engagement  and community groups to help create an affirming and safe environment for all students and families in Albany (4) provide mutual support within our group around Jewish identity and anti-Semitism (5) embrace all Jewish identities (e.g. secular, interfaith, Jews of color, LGBTQ, all levels of observance)
