Along with thousands of congregations across the country, CHJ will hold its annual Human Rights Havdalah program. 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.

Fairfield Winds Duo: Max Moon & Kate Wegener will be playing a set of Beethoven duets while we gather and eat.

A light supper will be served.  Please bring beverages to share: apple cider, soda water, wine, etc.

Park in the lot across the street or behind the church and enter through the side door.  Please do not come up the stairs into the kitchen. It will be held in the library.

Max and Kate have each distinguished themselves as leading musicians in the community. Oboist Kate Wegener, a senior at Joel Barlow High School in Easton, is the winner of the 2017 Norwalk Symphony Young Artist Concerto Competition and the 2017 Greater New Haven Youth Orchestra Concerto competition. This past summer she earned a place in the 2017 National Youth Orchestra of the USA and toured Latin America.
Max Moon will start as a Freshman at USC in January, 2018. He studied bassoon at the Manhattan School of Music Pre-college and is the recipient of the Paul Stebbins Bassoon Pre-college scholarship. He is the winner of the 2017 Greater Bridgeport Symphony Young Instrumentalist Competition and opened for the March, 2017 GBS concert.

This is open to the public so bring your friends.
