The Mission of Democratic Jewish Outreach PA
DJOP’s mission is to support Democratic candidates running in Pennsylvania who best reflect Jewish values, including: Tikkun Olam, assisting the less fortunate, treating strangers and foreigners with kindness, and equality for all.
Since forming DJOP in 2008, we have proudly supported federal Democratic candidates who advocate for a woman’s right to choose, gun safety, a clean environment, campaign finance reform, health care and quality education for all, and a strong and secure Israel. The main tool we use to assist candidates is running ads in Jewish and high-circulation, non-Jewish media and digitally, expressing the support of the Jewish community. We run print and online ads in the Jewish Exponent, Philadelphia Jewish Voice, Philadelphia Inquirer, The Morning Call, The Centre Daily Times, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, The Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle and StateCollege.com thanks to generous funding from our supporters.
These are challenging times eerily too familiar to the Jewish people. It is our responsibility to do all that we can to stop Trump and his Republican enablers in their tracks to prevent the further destruction of our nation. We owe it to our children and grandchildren to move our country towards humanity and away from a dangerous divisiveness.
We will continue to raise our voice in the public arena and to provide opportunities for productive exchanges of views within our community. To engage with us, follow us on Facebook, and email us (firstname.lastname@example.org). We also publish an e-newsletter; visit bit.ly/DJOP-Subscribe to sign up.
With gratitude for the support of the Jewish community for our efforts and determination to fight on for a just society,
Dina Lichtman Smith
