Racial Justice Vigil at St. Asaph’s @ St. Asaph's
Oct 28 @ 4:45 pm – 5:45 pm

Despite the desecration of Black Lives Matters signs in several places of worship, churches and synagogues throughout Lower Merion are currently displaying Black Lives Matter banners, and our wider interfaith community is gathering weekly to support these congregations and to raise our voices as advocates for racial justice.

Please bring handheld signs with peaceful messages advocating for racial justice. Vigils begin and end with prayer. In between, we stand for about 30 minutes along a busy street, holding our signs, bearing public witnesses to our collective desire for racial justice. Please feel welcome to bring a chair if you need one. Masks must be worn and friendly social distancing must be maintained during the entirety of each vigil.

Pre-Election Shabbat: Resources for Balance, Grounding and Guiding @ Zoom
Oct 31 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

The High Holidays were a wonderful reminder of how nourishing it can be to be together in community for prayer, music, discussion and connection! Let’s keep the good energy flowing ! Shabbat is a much needed refuge from the storm of our busy lives, and of the challenges we are living through. especially as we approach the upcoming election this week.
Our service will be filled with spiritual practices to reduce stress, balance, and ground us, music, song, and chant, and wisdom to guide us as we navigate these challenging times.

Anti-Racism: Learn, Listen, and Action Group @ ZOOM
Nov 1 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

JOIN US every other Sunday night, as we continue to look at our own white privilege, learn about systemic racism, and share how we are coping, what we are doing, and how we can learn and act together as a community whose values and morality call us to be part of the movement working towards racial justice.

THIS GROUP IS OPEN TO ALL – YOU NEED NOT BE A HAVURAH MEMBER TO PARTICIPATE! While we hope to develop a strong core group who will be with us on a regular basis each time we meet, you are also welcome to “drop in” and participate as your schedule allows.

Sessions will include a combination of listening and support for each other, reading articles or watching informative video clips on the issues to learn from and discuss, guest speakers on various aspects of systemic racism and how we can make an impact, and action plans that we can be part of.

Please send an email to Rabbi Simcha (rabbisimchazevit@gmail.com)  if you’d like to be part of this ongoing group, and you’ll be added to the email list.

Wine and Wisdom
Nov 6 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Or tea and wisdom…or dessert and wisdom…in other words the wine is less important the wisdom, but since wine often goes with Shabbat, bring your glass along, or a hot beverage and a “nosh”  if you like, and join us for an adult learning and discussion time. Wine and Wisdom is offered following our Community Welcoming of Shabbat candle lighting gatherings, once each month. Wine and Wisdom will focus on various topics: the Torah portion of the week, holidays, Jewish wisdom on current events, and more. A time to connect with each other, learn from each other and from our tradition. Join us!

JRA Food Packing & Delivery @ JRA Warehouse
Nov 15 @ 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!
