Social justice has a central place in Judaism as we affirm values such as Chesed, Tikkun Olam and Pikuah Nefesh. Join us to gain awareness and a better understanding of the social justice issues facing us all. We will explore the topics of LGBTQ+ in the Jewish Community, Environmental Justice and Immigration. Each worshop will offer a Jewish perspective and feature an expert speaker via zoom. We will open a dialogue on these topics and make a difference through education, support and advocacy.
