South Side Shabbat Justice Potluck @ Hyde Park Moishe House
May 24 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Are you a Jewish south sider who cares about justice issues? Join us for a South Side Base Building Potluck Shabbat on Friday, May 24, 2019! The dinner will be at Moishe House, 5203 S. Dorchester Ave., from 6:00-9:00pm. While sharing Shabbat together, we’ll have a guided conversation about how our South Side connections and identities inform the issues and concerns we have as Jews. This will be a chance to get to know each other and learn what the social justice issues are that matter most to us, our friends, and our neighbors specifically as South Siders. Come ready to learn and share!

Please RSVP by Wednesday, May 22, if you are able to join us on May 24. Additionally, please make sure that the food item you plan to bring is vegan to respect everyone’s kosher needs. Finally, an accessibility note: the venue has stairs to get to the entrance. Email estherbowen@jcua.org with questions.

Chicago Justice Series Final Shabbat
May 31 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join Avodah, Jewish Council on Urban Affairs, Mishkan Chicago, Repair the World and Silverstein Base Hillel for our third annual Chicago  Justice series. This year we will focus on themes of safety and security through a Jewish lens: examining our relationships as Jews to law enforcement historically and today, exploring local work on police accountability, and thinking about how various identities we hold may impact how we think about our own safety.

Register below for the series, which costs $25 a person and includes dinners at all sessions. If cost is a barrier to participation we are happy to work with you – we want this space to be accessible to everyone. Email Rabbi Megan (rabbimegan@gmail.com) and we will make it work!
