Our Adult Education Committee Presents:

Rise Up Step Up with Rabbi Jonah Pesner

Sunday, October 22 from 2:00 - 5:00 PM

Join us as we welcome Rabbi Jonah Pesner, one of the most charismatic and inspiring leaders of the Reform Jewish movement. Rabbi Pesner serves as the Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism and Senior Vice President of the Union for Reform Judaism. Named one of the most influential rabbis in America by Newsweek magazine, he is a creative entrepreneur, a dynamic leader and a tireless advocate for social justice. We are thrilled to have him speak with us about current social justice issues facing our country and how the Reform Jewish community is responding. . .the perfect way to launch our exciting Eighteen in ’18 initiative. Rabbi Pesner’s words have motivated multitudes to action and it will be no different here.

After his address, we will offer workshops highlighting speakers in social justice issues of immigration, racial justice and climate change so you can discover how to step up in 2018!

Speakers will include:
Meg Mall, Executive Director of Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions (FACS) - Climate Change
