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.
We are an anti-oppressive Jewish organization on a mission to commemorate Latin-Jewish multiculturalism, explore Latin-Jewish identity and intersectionality, and support the development of empowered Latin-Jewish leaders.
We envision a world in which the global Jewish community celebrates its multiethnic, multiracial and multicultural story, and actively works to eliminate racism, colorism, classism, linguicism, sexism and xenophobia within the community.
Our organizational values are expressed through the five COs.
CO-MUNIDAD (Kehilla): Actively co-create a kind, curious and respectful platform for everyone in our multiethnic, multiracial and multicultural global community.
CO-NEXIÓN (Chevruta): Connecting Latin Jews of all backgrounds to one another, while also connecting the larger Jewish and Latin communities to our heritage and history.
CO-NCIENCIA (Tzedek): Critically examine how injustice is experienced within our communities, so that we can collectively interrupt oppression, heal and work towards advancing equity and justice.
CO-LABORACIÓN (Brit): Collaborating with numerous organizations to materialize and maximize change, furthering equity and justice in the Latin and Jewish communities.
CO-NSERVACIÓN (Shomrei Tarbut): Committing to the conservation of Latin-Jewish culture and ensuring that our dynamic heritage is included in the larger Jewish narrative
