Stand Up

Jewish Commitment to a Better World

Section 1

Where social justice and tikkun olam is who we are.

We're working towards a future where social justice action and tikkun olam (repairing the world) is an intrinsic part of the Jewish community. Where there is a growing movement of Jewish people, leaders and institutions agitating for change, because they see this change as not only necessary—but as a fundamental part of their Jewish identity. 

Pirkei Avot 2:21

You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.

Section 3

Our partners thrive.

We are uncompromising about the future we want to see; an Australia where everyone can reach their full potential. We fearlessly acknowledge that our society holds some of us back and we are committed to working hand-in-hand with our partners towards a future without racism, disadvantage and inequality. We want to work together to grapple with and overcome pressing challenges where the potential of everyone, regardless of the colour of their skin, where they were born or how much money they have, is unleashed.

What we do.

As Jews we have a responsibility to improve our world. Inspired by the Jewish commitment to social justice, Stand Up exists to channel the collective willpower, expertise and compassion of the Australian Jewish community to grasp and fulfil this responsibility. In pursuit of justice, Stand Up has a long and proud history of working in partnership with refugee and First Nation communities.
