Mosaic Visions is an action-oriented organization that represents Jews of Color. It is an organization of racially and ethnically diverse Jews and other allies and collaborators that are committed to equity and diversity. This is an organization that is a safe space for Jews of Color and other People of Color to come together to discuss and take action on issues of social and civil justice, and diversity-focused on strengthening first and foremost the Jewish community as well as the community-at-large through understanding, acceptance, and inclusion.
Through conversation and dialogue, we strategize ways to strengthen and unify the Jewish community by being more inclusive of Jews from all racial and ethnic backgrounds through actions as well as strengthening the local community to be more inclusive. The next level of action is to work in the larger community by establishing action-oriented projects focused on community building nationally and internationally strengthening diverse identities, acceptance, and inclusion. We believe in employing both words and deeds that lead to constructive change.
Pirkei Avot reminds us that deeds of loving-kindness are one of the pillars on which the world stands. Whether you were born Jewish or are a Jew by choice, or identify as a Jew of Color or as an ally, we welcome you to find out more about the Mosaic Visions by signing up.
