Jerusalem Peacebuilders and Board Installation Shabbat
August 10, 2018 @ 7:15 pm - 8:45 pm
Join us for a profoundly moving service as a group of teens from Israel and the Palestinian territories grace us with their stories after having spent the previous week at a camp called “Kids 4 Peace”.
The purpose of this camp, which takes place outside of Houston, is to promote transformational encounters through a residential camp for Israeli, Palestinian and American teenagers. Dialogue is facilitated by United States diplomats, former Israeli and Palestinian combatants, artists, and religious leaders from each faith. These brave souls have committed themselves to learning from each other despite the ongoing context of hatred and violence that surround them every day. Learn about this groundbreaking camp and how it has transformed these peace-minded teens as our guests will share their experiences.
Additionally, we will be installing our 2018-19 Board of Trustees. Join us as we show our true appreciation for these leaders of the congregation who volunteer countless hours of their time to serve the HCRJ community. Congratulations to:
Bruce Appelbaum, Debbie Barrash, Fran Brochstein, Frances Feinberg, Adam Forman, Bob Frank, Mike Kahn, Marc Levinson, Leslie Lovett, Gale Paschkes, Jaime Perkins, Bruce Shelby, Rick Silverman and Adam Weinstein.
