What's Doing?

Human Rights Shabbat: Speaker Rabbi Lev Meirowitz Nelson: Is ‘Human Rights’ a Jewish Framework?


Kabbalat Shabbat / Potluck Dinner
Friday, December 12 | 6:30PM

Join us at PSJC for Human Rights Shabbat. PSJC and Kolot Chayeinu will come together at PSJC for a special Kabbalat Shabbat service in honor of Human Rights Shabbat. Join Rabbis Carter and Lippmann and our cantors, Judy Ribnick and Lisa B. Segal for a musical Kabbalat Shabbat service at 6:30pm, followed by a vegetarian, dairy, pareve, potluck dinner and a special speaker:  Rabbi Lev Meirowitz Nelson who will explore with us the question:  Is “Human Rights” a Jewish Framework?”

Using Shabbat as a case study, we’ll look at a combination of Jewish and secular texts, both old and new, to explore this question. Brace yourself for a conversation that
embraces the creation of the world, the messianic era, and the high and low points of the 20thcentury. Rabbi Lev Meirowitz Nelson is Director of Education at T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, which mobilizes a network of 1800 rabbis and cantors and their communities to bring a moral Jewish voice to protecting the human rights of all people in North America, Israel, and the Palestinian territories.
