Join us to hear from Lesley Sachs, Immediate Past Executive Director of Women of the Wall (WOW), Director of WOW’s Speakers Bureau, as she shares information about the organization’s efforts to ensure gender equality and religious pluralism in Israel. As a leading voice in Israel for women’s rights and religious pluralism. WOW’s supporters come from a wide range of religious observance with a singular goal of empowering and encouraging freedom of religious expression and gender equality in Israel. WOW advocates for social and legal recognition of the right for women to wear prayer shawls, pray, and read from the Torah, collectively and aloud, at the Western Wall. While WOW’s visibility is advocating for freedom of women and girls to pray at Judaism’s holiest site, the Kotel, the organization’s work encompasses a wider vision of inclusion for Jewish women and girls of all denominations in Israel to live and pray safely and as they choose.

TRAINING IS POSTPONED. NEW DATE COMING SOON!

 

Interested in fighting discrimination and bias? Join us for a free Bystander Intervention Training with facilitator Krystal Marx.

 

In this highly interactive training, Washington Initiative (WAI) Head Trainer Krystal Marx will help participants better understand what “bystander apathy” is, and why we fall back into it when something happens. We will then focus on ways to step in that empower the person being targeted, how to confront the harasser, and how to know when to do so. Event is free of charge.

 


Joshua Safran is an author, attorney and nationally recognized advocate for survivors of domestic abuse. His 7-year legal odyssey to free a Deborah Peagler, an incarcerated survivor of domestic violence, was featured in the award-winning documentary film, Crime After Crime, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Safran’s critically-acclaimed book, Free Spirit: Growing Up On the Road and Off the Grid, chronicling his remarkable childhood on the dark side of the Age of Aquarius, has been called a “beautiful, powerful memoir. . . reminiscent of David Sedaris’s and Augusten Burroughs’s best work: introspective, hilarious, and heartbreaking” (Publishers Weekly starred review). Join us to hear Joshua talk about his experiences working to free Peagler and own personal story of resilience overcoming the most eccentric and harrowing of childhoods.
This gathering is made possible by Jewish Family Service.


Beth Shalom Chapter Sewing Sisters Days For Girls
Help Girls Stay in School in Cameroon!

All ages, genders, and religious faiths welcome.

Sewing skills not necessary. This is a great project for high school students who need volunteer hours and for b’nai mitzvah students who are searching for a fun and meaningful mitzvah project.  Families welcome. Light dinner provided. If you are interested, feel free to show up.

About the Project: Our primary goal is to build cross-cultural communities that work for good & have fun together. Last year 10 members from our community of Saturday Sewing Sisters carried 1,200 kits from the SSS community to school girls in Cameroon. Our goal is 1,500 kits to take in Cameroon in December 2016. The Days for Girls (DfG) kit design is the result of feedback from    women all over the world. Listening is an approach that results in solutions that work. Every washable Feminine Hygiene Kit gives back up to 6 months of living in just 3 years of use. That’s 180 days of education, health, safety and   dignity.  See the Days for Girls website.
