Parsha & Peanut Butter

Friday, February 21, 2020 26 Sh'vat 5780

6:00 PM - 7:30 PMB'nai Havurah

Join Rabbi Evette in a kabbalat-shabbat-lite setting for tikkun olam (repairing the world), limmud torah (torah study & discussion), and community connection.

 

We’ll learn about the social justice implications of the week’s parsha, while preparing sack lunches to feed the hungry in our community.

 

 

 

"You were strangers once!" February's discussion is on the importance of the ger - the stranger in Parshat Mishpatim. Click here for information about this parsha and consider: Who is a "stranger in a strange land"?  Why is the memory of being a stranger so closely tied to our Jewish identity?

 

Our first batch of lunches will go to Urban Peak. Founded in 1988, Urban Peak is the only non-profit organization in Denver that provides a full convergence of services for youth ages 15 through 24 experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Our goal is to help these youth overcome real-life challenges and become self-sufficient adults.

 

April’s discussion will revolve around Parshat Sh'mini. Click here for information about this parsha and consider: Does God really care about what we eat?  And what about the fire that consumes Aaron’s two sons?? What?!? Really?!!?

 

Scroll down and let us know you will be joining us, and from a list of options, please let us know what item(s) you might be able to bring to help us create our 36 lunch bags.


Bring a friend! We’d love to have a core group of Parsha & Peanut Butter friends who will join us for this and future sessions and help us determine which organizations or individuals might benefit from the fruits (and sandwiches, and granola bars) of our labors.

 

Please sign up for items you are willing to bring with you to our February 21st 
Parsha & Peanut Butter. B'nai Havurah will provide sandwich and lunch bags, napkins.
