A Post-Election Community Conversation with the Social Action Committee
Tuesday December 6 at 7:00 pm
Join us for a community conversation on social action and social justice. So many of us have been reflecting and considering how to respond to the recent election... as I said numerous times over the summer and early fall, it is what we do after the election that is so critical, perhaps just as important as however we voted on Election Day.
The meeting, held under the auspices of the Social Action committee, is open to all members of the congregation. Come and consider the possibilities for advocacy work, in addition to the direct service work that is ongoing. Come and share your perspective on what we can do with our community partners, especially including other religious groups.
This meeting will be a chance to renew our commitment to the fullness of tikkun olam, the repair of the world. I hope it will also be an opportunity to draw closer together as a community, sharing our profound emotions and sense of urgency. This will be a safe place to share and to propose courses of action. The result will be, I hope, a number of different working groups taking steps to strengthen our country, bringing together those with common passion and commitment.
If you have any questions before December 6, please share them with me. I am very grateful for all that so many of you have shared with me since November 8. Together, we will make a difference, and add to the justice, equality, and peace in the community.
