Because we were snowed out on December 9th, we will also be celebrating Shabbat/Havdalah across America.
We will celebrate the Declaration of Human Rights and begin examining our own privilege, both historically and in the present moment. We live side by side with stunting poverty and hunger and inequality in one of the two richest counties in the U.S. It’s time to look to ourselves to understand the problems before we can fix them. How do we contribute to existing inequalities? Interactive exercises and discussion will help us explore what comes next in the struggle for human rights.
We will be sending out a short questionnaire a week before the event. Please print it out and fill it in and bring it with you.
A light supper and dessert will be served. Please bring beverages to share: wine, apple cider, soda water, etc.
Please RSVP to Gail Ostrow (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Saturday, March 3rd, so we can order enough food for everyone. This program is suitable for young people 12-years-old and up.
Please park across the street or in back but enter through the side or front entrance. Please do not come in through the back and up the stairs into the kitchen.
