Our name, JEWTINA y Co. (jo͞o-tēnə ē koh), denotes our Familia Jewtina's intersecting Jewish and Latin cultural identities, and the five values that root our organization.
Jewtina y Co. is a Jewish and Latin organization on a mission to nurture Latin-Jewish community, identity, leadership and resiliency, and celebrate Latin-Jewish heritage and multiculturalism.
We envision a world in which the global Jewish and Latino/e/x communities joyfully celebrate their multicultural story, and work together to interrupt inequities within our communities.
Our organizational values are expressed through the four COs.
CO-MUNIDAD (Kehilla): Co-creating a kind, curious, joyful and respectful community where all Latin Jews belong, thrive and feel empowered to contribute.
CO-NSERVACIÓN (Kavod HaBriot): Designing programs and resources that honor and preserve Jewish and Latin culture with dignity.
CO-LABORACIÓN (Arevut): Examining inequities within the Jewish and Latino/e/x communities, and collaboratively working to make our communities free of oppression due to our unwavering belief in mutual responsibility.
CO-NOCER (Limmud): Providing opportunities for the larger Jewish and Latine/o/x community to learn about Latin-Jewish history, heritage and peoplehood.
CO-NTINUAR (L'dor v'dor): Working to ensure that future generations of Latin-Jews have histories and traditions they can easily access, implement and share.
