JRA Food Packing & Delivery @ JRA Warehouse
Nov 17 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us at the Jewish Relief Agency’s warehouse to pack food boxes and deliver them to needy families. This is a fun activity appropriate for the entire family!

Go to the JRA website to see your options as to times you wish to help on each delivery date: while you can volunteer in whatever way works best for you, we generally plan for Havurah members to meet by where bagels are served so we can have a bite and then get in line together to pack boxes before we head out for deliveries. Please RSVP for a delivery route through the JRA website ahead of time!

Human Rights Shabbat Service @ Narberth Borough Hall

On Human Rights Shabbat, we celebrate the deep intersections between Judaism and human rights. Since 2008, nearly 500 communities have joined this celebration. In 2017 alone, Truah’s Human Rights Shabbat program reached over 12,000 people in 154 communities.

Human Rights Shabbat is observed on the Shabbat closest to International Human Rights Day, December 10, which is the anniversary of the UN’s adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 2019 marks the 71st anniversary of the Declaration.
