Guest Teacher: Rabbi Jaime Aklepi
Thursday, May 17th, 7:00 pm
In the Torah, Jews are taught to accept others without prejudice or bias and to advance justice for all people equally. Come learn with Rabbi Aklepi about how our sacred texts and traditions address justice and mercy. Join the conversation on how we can make a difference.
The Criminal Justice Reform Campaign of the Religious Action Center (RAC) of Reform Judaism pursues the vision for racial justice by working to end mass incarceration and racial disparities in our criminal justice system.
