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 work together to interrupt racism, colorism, sexism, heterosexism, linguicism, nativism and other systems of oppressions within our 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.
