In September 2013, CreagerCole Communications placed four OpEds for our Client, T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights.
On September 9 we placed a piece by T’ruah’s Director of Israel Programs, Joshua Bloom, in The Jerusalem Post. This excerpt from the OpEd sums up Bloom’s argument: “While Israel has been a country of refuge for Jews fleeing persecution in Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and elsewhere, the government is turning its back on non-Jews seeking refuge from persecution.”
On September 13 we placed “Sukkot Reminds Us to Protect The Vulnerable” in The Jewish Week. The OpEd, by Avi Strausberg, spotlights the plight of many domestic workers in the United States and the steps that must be taken to protect them.
On September 18 we placed another piece by T’ruah’s Joshua Bloom, this time in The Daily Beast. The OpEd discusses an Israeli High Court Ruling favorable to African Asylum Seekers and its connection to Yom Kippur.
On September 24 we secured this OpEd placement in The Washington Post’s “On Faith”. The piece, “A Jewish call for justice for prisoners in solitary” by Rabbi Rachel Gartner, calls for an end to long-term solitary confinement in America’s prisons.
CreagerCole Communications has served as T’ruah’s media relation’s firm for over a year and we are proud to work with this champion human rights organization. We’ll undoubtedly be placing more high-profile OpEds for this group in the months ahead.
