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, leadership and resiliency, and celebrate Latin-Jewish heritage and multiculturalism.
We envision a world in which the global Jewish and Latino/x communities joyfully celebrate their multicultural story, and actively work to be anti-oppressive so that Latin-Jews can fully show up, belong and thrive in both the Jewish and Latino/x communities.
Our organizational values are expressed through the five 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 (B’riyut): Conserving Latin-Jewish culture while also nurturing Latin-Jewish joy, identity development, leadership, wellness and resiliency.
CO-NEXIÓN (Shomrei Tarbut): Designing programs and resources that center and connect Jewish and Latino/x culture as complementary and vital to our identity, leadership and resiliency development.
CO-ACTUAR (Avodah): Examining oppression within the Jewish and Latino/x communities, and collectively working to make our communities equitable and just so that all can belong.
CO-NOCER (Limud): Providing opportunities for the larger Jewish and Latino/x community to learn about Latin-Jewish history, heritage and peoplehood.
