Open Meeting: Promoting Jewish Values in the Face of Hate

Monday, January 30, 2017
7:00 pm at Kane Street

An executive order, issued on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, closing the nation to refugees for now and banning people from a number of Muslim majority countries from entering, has added a special urgency to this Open Meeting at our Synagogue and the issues we seek to address.

Over the past few months, Kane Street members have responded strongly to the Refugee Welcome Campaign and to organizing efforts initiated by Councilman Brad Lander aimed at resisting acts and policies of injustice and hate that have been expressed in the current political environment.

This meeting will provide an opportunity for us to become better educated in two areas of emerging Kane Street advocacy: supporting immigrants and building Muslim-Jewish alliances.

Joining us as guest speakers will be Neena Dutta, a Director on the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association’s (AILA) Board of Governors; Muslim Community Network Executive Director Christina Tasca; and longstanding Synagogue member and interfaith leader, Rabbi Simkha Weintraub.

The evening will provide time for community members to both ask questions and brainstorm on strategies and actions to pursue. Please contact [email protected] for more information about this open meeting or to RSVP (not required but encouraged).
