Special Friday Night Service, Jan. 30: Health Needs in Haiti and How We Can Help

We invite everyone to come to a special Shabbat service this Friday night, January 30, 7:30-9 p.m., sponsored by Beit Ahavah’s Tzedek Tzedek (social justice) committee.

Beit Ahavah’s long-time members Lucy Garbus and David Slack will present their passionate work through sharing and photographs, as part of Haiti Marycare, an organization that addresses the health issues in Haiti, focusing on the town of Jacquesyl and its surroundings.  Lucy and David’s next trip to Haiti is in March.  

Rabbi Riqi will also share about the American Jewish World Service (AJWS) projects in Haiti and the Jewish imperative of “justice, justice shall you pursue.”
