Building Jewish Power in Philadelphia

Two months ago, a story was posted on this website about alumna Cecily Harwitt working through POWER (Philadelphians Organized to Witness Empower and Rebuild) to build Jewish power in the Philadelphia area and bring more synagogues into the larger broad-based organizing movement. Since then, Cecily has been hard at work engaging congregations to stand up and demand a living wage for workers at Philly’s airport.

Check out this story from The Jewish Exponent about POWER’s work with synagogues and see how Cecily’s efforts are beginning to bear fruit.
