EXCITING “HAPPENINGS” FROM OUR CLERGY TEAM!
RABBI SHARON SOBEL is honoured and thrilled to be one of a few select rabbis who has been chosen to participate in the American Jewish World Service’s (AJWS) Global Justice Fellowship for Rabbis for the 2014-2015 year. This program is a selective, year-long program designed to inspire, educate and train key opinion leaders in the American Jewish community to become activist leaders in support of global justice.
The fellowship is done in conjunction with the rabbis’ work in their own congregations. AJWS feels that congregational rabbis play key roles in their communities when it comes to coalition building, community organizing and raising awareness about critical issues.
The fellowship includes an 8-10 day educational trip to a developing country, during which participants witness the power of grassroots efforts to overcome poverty and injustice. The trip will be preceded and followed by a year-long innovative series of educational programs that will prepare participants to mobilize and organize their communities and networks in support of AJWS’s campaigns and other efforts to promote global justice.
This year, participants will travel to Kenya in August to learn from extraordinary local human rights activists who are using grassroots organizing tactics to fight discrimination and sexual and gender-based violence against women, girls and LGBT people. Back in the U.S., fellows will engage in innovative trainings designed to develop skills in organizing and advocacy. The fellowship will build a strong core of leaders in the U.S. dedicated to advocating for human rights and ending poverty in the developing world.
CANTORIAL SOLOIST HEATHER ARANYI has been asked to be one of three keynote speakers at the International Women Cantors Conference. She will present on the first day of the conference. Her topic will be "Tots Through Teenagers: Creating Developmentally Appropriate Children and Family Services."
She also presented at the conference last year, when she spoke on creating developmentally appropriate children and family services for High Holy Days. She is extremely honored to be asked to present again. This is only the second time a presenter has been asked to return, and it was based on audience feedback.
