Please join us for our next Social Justice Committee meeting on Thursday evening November 14th. Our focus continues to be Family Violence, but we would like to move beyond into possibly Reproductive Justice and Gun Violence Prevention. 

We have some great plans for 2020 including:
  • Shabbat scheduled for January 26th titled, “Shamor L’Amour- Infusing the Spirit of Shabbat Into Healthy Relationships.”
  • Community outreach with organizations that work with family violence.
  • A Reproductive Justice speaker program. 
  • A program with our Next Dor teens focusing on dating and healthy relationships. breaking the family violence cycle, we’d like to put together an event next spring for our Temple Shalom teens who are part of Next Dor 2.0.
Now, we want to hear YOUR ideas, and how you can help in implementing these programs!
