Our theatrical rendition of the Purim story, touching on housing justice in Detroit, and this moment in Israel-Palestine.
Indoor/Outdoor event space so you can regulate your body temperature and COVID comfort
Partying with people of ALL AGES, from Boomers to Zoomers
Food and drinks!
Plugging into DJJ's ongoing organizing, and feeling the power of collective action

DJJ is building Jewish political communities we can be proud of—communities based on local and intergenerational relationships, that practice solidarity with all oppressed people, and that embody the world we want to live in. We are building Jewish spaces that center the young, queer, non-white, and disabled among us, spaces that people won’t run away from. We are following the lead of movements of other marginalized groups, and building deep coalitions that will protect each other from the far-right. But in order to do all of this well, we need resources.
DJJ relies on its extended community for a substantial portion of our budget because we need to, but also because it reflects DJJ's commitment to letting our volunteer leaders guide the organization. If you value the work of local, progressive, Jewish political organizing, donate today to celebrate a breakthrough 2022!
Thank you so much for your generous gift! Your support makes this work possible.

We will not stand idly by while the administration escalates its attacks on Muslims, Arabs, refugees and immigrants. We pledge to show up: in the streets, at the airport, in our decision-makers’ offices and inboxes. Compelled by Jewish values, history and self-interest, we commit to the struggle against white supremacy and bigotry in all its forms.
