Do you like celebrating Shabbat through social justice? Do you believe that LA's jail system needs to be reformed?
Join Bend the Arc, Beit T'Shuvah, NCJW, Nefesh, and Habonim Dror Camp Gilboa for a "lunch and learn" on Saturday, February 22nd where you get to be a part of one of the most important actions in years. The country will have all eyes on LA if we pass this measure that will make a significant difference to so many lives.
Come celebrate Shabbat with us and learn how to get involved with efforts to pass Measure R and Reform LA Jails. Measure R will be on the LA County ballot for the March primary election and, if passed, will force LA to take a monumental leap forward to root out corruption to prevent abuses by the Jails and Sheriff’s Department. If passed, Measure R will initiate the research needed to divert funding from the building of more jails to investing in programs such as treatment for mental health issues, substance abuse, programs for employment and education and invest in the affordable housing the county so desperately needs.
Join us for some or all of the day:
Shabbat services at 11am
Lunch at 12:45pm
Yes on R program at 1pm
Please RSVP so we know to expect you!
