Thank you for joining JCUA for Acts of Change 2020! On July 20, we came together Live on YouTube to reaffirm JCUA’s mission to transform the City of Chicago into a place that embodies the Jewish values of equity and justice.

Rewatch the Acts of Change program on YouTube.

Every year at Acts of Change, JCUA honors an individual with the Rabbi Robert J. Marx Social Justice Award for their commitment to the values JCUA’s founder Rabbi Marx lives and teaches. We honored Jeff Zaluda with this year’s award for his lifelong dedication to pursuing social justice and a more equitable Chicago. Jeff has been a leading voice in JCUA’s work for more than a decade, generously dedicating his time, passion, and resources to carrying forward our mission. He has helped us grow into an organization that is as focused and powerful as we’ve ever been.

The funds we raise for Acts of Change allows JCUA to activate the Jewish community of Chicago around racial and economic justice. You can still support Acts of Change and JCUA’s work to advance racial and economic justice in Chicago.
