CRC Audience Agreement of Conduct

JEWISH COMMUNITY RELATIONS COUNCIL
Audience Agreement of Conduct
דרך ארץ קדמה לתורה

Respectful speaking and listening are essential, even though there may be widely differing opinions present. This is rooted in a core Jewish value: Derech eretz kadmah l’Torah, proper conduct precedes the Torah. We call upon those attending CRC programming to engage in mutual respect, even in the midst of a heated argument.

Verbal and/or nonverbal attempts to interrupt or disturb the program, as well as uncivil behavior directed toward speakers, other members of the audience, and/or program organizers may result in removal from the premises and affect participation in future CRC programs.
