Tsibele is the house band for the Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ) Meyer Awards. With special musical guests Dr. Samuel Torjman Thomas, April Centrone, Leah King, and Mary Feaster.
JFREJ established the Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer Risk Taker Award in 1995 to honor people and organizations who have taken extraordinary risks in the pursuit of justice. Rabbi Meyer, who served as the rabbi of Congregation B'nai Jeshurun, was a fighter for social justice, a man of vision who was willing to put acceptance and safety at risk to struggle for a better world. The awardees continue this inspiring legacy through their work combating all forms of oppression and the risks they have taken in doing so.
