Rabbis join Clintons fight against racism

In addition to recognizing racism as a sin, Hain said, people must take an active role in ending prejudice.

The Rabbinical Council has designated May 6 as the Shabbat on which it will begin its "One Humanity" project. As part of the yearlong program, the council will urge its rabbis to speak openly about racism and reconciliation, create new outreach programs to the poor and homeless, and reach across racial and social lines with educational programs.
