Do Not Stand Idly By: A Jewish Community Pledge to Save Lives

Dear Friends: We've decided to use a dedicated website to handle the outpouring of support for this effort. Please - visit to sign the pledge. Thank you! As members of a tradition that sees each person as created in the divine image, we respond with anguish and outrage at the spate of suicides brought on by homophobic bullying and intolerance. We hereby commit to ending homophobic bullying or harassment of any kind in our synagogues, schools, organizations, and communities. As a signatory, I pledge to speak out when I witness anyone being demeaned for their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. I commit myself to do whatever I can to ensure that each and every person in my community is treated with dignity and respect.
