ONLINE – Shavuot Shabbat Service with Focus on the UnHoused

Saturday, May 30 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Join us for Shavuot Shabbat Service with Focus on the UnHoused with Rabbi Dev, Hazzan Shulamit, teaching from Talya Husbands-Hankin, and Debbie Fier. This Shabbat falls on Shavuot, the holiday of the ingathering of the first fruits and the holiday celebrating the receiving of Torah. It is also, by coincidence, Housing Sabbath weekend. For Shavuot, Hazzan Shulamit will lead Hallel, a musical worship as part of our service. We will also have Yizkor (occurs only 4 times a year), the service remembering those who have died in the years past. And for Housing Shabbat, we will hear from one of the great local advocates for those who are unhoused, Kehilla activist and Glitter Kehilla spiritual leader Talya Husbands-Hankin. A great tie-in for Housing Shabbat is from the traditional Torah reading for Shavuot – Deuteronomy 15:7-9, which requires us to share our resources with the most vulnerable.

Talya is also Lead Organizer and Advocate for https://www.loveandjusticeinthestreets.com/ and part of our new Homeless Action committee, a branch of our Economic Justice Committee.

Join us by Zoom here!
