For those who have written in NJJN about their commitment to address racial inequality, I have what I think is a real solution. Those committed to the cause of equality who live in a privileged community, such as Millburn, can switch homes with a low-income, under-served family in a predominantly minority community such as Irvington. Each family would continue to pay the taxes, mortgage obligations, insurance, etc., of their respective legal residences. This exchange would provide a minority family with access to the advantages of living in a wealthy community and the privileged family could make a tangible contribution to a more equitable society.
Progressive Jewish temples could facilitate this exchange by working with churches to find congregants willing to participate. I implore our progressive temples to take on this challenge and make real change.
