Avodah joins friend of the court brief to challenge the legality of the President’s Executive Order

Jewish tradition requires that Jews speak out against injustice. Jewish history teaches the critical importance of standing up for those targeted by hatred and intolerance. That is why Avodah was proud to sign on to an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief challenging the legality of the President’s Executive Order barring refugees and immigrants from seven majority Muslim countries. Avodah was joined by several longtime partners including American Jewish World Service, HIAS, Jewish Council on Urban Affairs, National Council of Jewish Women, T’ruah, and the Union for Reform Judaism.
