Jewish World Watch
Kol Ami participates actively in Jewish World Watch, a coalition organization of member synagogues throughout Southern California, formed in response to the Darfur genocide. JWW's goals are to educate and advocate to end genocide, and to provide humanitarian relief assistance.
Current efforts focus on maintaining pressure on the U.S. Administration to address the ongoing conflict in Darfur and the humanitarian challenges and violence in South Sudan.
JWW has also actively engaged in humanitarian work and advocacy on the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the world's most deadliest conflict area since World War II (5.4 million dead since 1996.) Learn more about the conflict in the DRC and ways our synagogue can participate in the “conflict-free minerals” campaign.
