TBA Shabbat Dinner & Program in the Sukkah
September 28, 2018 , 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
On Friday, September 28 , 7:30 PM, following Shabbat Services at 6:30 PM, Temple B’nai Abraham the Social Action Committee and Sisterhood The Women’s Connection will co-sponsor a Shabbat Dinner in the Sukkah and Program at the Temple, 300 East Northfield Road, Livingston. GreenFaith representative Sarah Newell, will speak on “Environmental Injustice. ”
Sarah Newell’s recognition of environmental injustice in her home country of Ireland led her to GreenFaith, an interfaith coalition founded in 1992 to help people of all faiths become better stewards of the environment. As a GreenFaith intern supporting a range of campaigns, Sarah is soon to graduate with a Masters in Leadership for Sustainable Development. She holds a degree in Youth & Community and is passionate to connect youth toward faith-based environmental action. She led the implementation of a sustainability plan for a large faith-based summer camp serving low income communities throughout NJ and is helping move her church in Ireland move toward environmental action.
Sarah Newell will educate us to protect the Earth and its inhabitants, and to recognize the serious threats of human activity on the earth, so we, as Jews, can commit ourselves to care for the poor and vulnerable, protecting them from environmental injustice, racism and harm.
Join your friends for a delicious dinner in the festively decorated Sukkah ( weather permitting), good conversation and a stimulating presentation indoors in the Silberman Conservatory! The cost per person is $22 if registered by September 26, thereafter the cost is $25 per person. All are welcome to attend.
