Pikuach nefesh–the saving of life–is the holiest commandment in Judaism. With the widespread availability of COVID-19 vaccines now available to the majority of Americans, we each have the opportunity to save not only our own lives but the lives of others as well.
Together, we can end the COVID-19 pandemic– but only if everyone pitches in.
National Council of Jewish Women is proud to be a leader in this effort as a founding member of the White House’s COVID-19 Community Corps, a nationwide effort to encourage communities of all walks of life to receive their vaccinations. We’re also deeply proud of our sections for spearheading this effort in their local communities from the outset, from helping make appointments in Essex, NJ, to comprehensive education campaigns in Sacramento, CA.
Today, NCJW calls on you to embody pikuach nefesh and pledge to get vaccinated and help others get vaccinated, so no one is left behind. Will you sign on?
Share the pledge on social media! Tag us @NCJW on Twitter, @NCJWInc on Facebook, and @NCJWInc on Instagram and use the hashtags #IPledged #GetOutTheVax
