Candle Delivery on Capitol Hill

December 20, 2012


Over 1,000 people joined us in telling Congress that it’s time to end tax cuts for the wealthiest two percent. Today, we brought their voices to the capitol and delivered candles to members of Congress to show that Jews want a tax system that works for everyone. 

Delivering Candles to Congress

From left to right you can see Hadar Susskind (Director of Bend the Arc Jewish Action), Rabbi Esther Lederman (Rabbi of Washington DC’s Temple Micah), Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Chair of the Democratic National Committee), Rabbi Jason Kimelman-Block (Bend the Arc’s Rabbi-in-Residence), Rabbi Elizabeth Richman (Program Director of Jews United for Justice), and Rep. Keith Ellison (Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus).

Thank you to everyone who took action and sent your voices to Washington with Bend the Arc.

If you haven't taken action yet, take a moment to do so now.
