Join us for a delicious taste of wine and cheese before our 7pm Erev Shabbat service. This is a great opportunity to meet Rabbi Weiss and other JRC members in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
This Shabbat, we are joined by a special guest, JRC member Abby Harris-Ridker. In July, Abby was one of 40 diaspora Jews who traveled to the West Bank with the Center for Jewish Nonviolence. The delegation included people with multiple perspectives unified by the belief that Occupation is not our Judaism. During this week's Shabbat service, Abby will describe her experiences in Bethlehem, East Jerusalem, Hebron, Susiya, and Umm al-Kheir and talk about how they left her both horrified and rejuvenated. Come hear her reflections about 10 days of working, learning, celebrating Shabbat, and taking action against the occupation in solidarity with Palestinians and Jews.
Abby will also be available during the Wine and Cheese gathering to talk about upcoming events for young adults at JRC.
This event is open members and guests alike. Share your visit with us on social media using the hashtag: #BringAFriendToJRC.
