PK and Social Action: What Does Living a Jewish Progressive Life Look Like?

Sunday, January 16, 2022 14 Shevat 5782

3:00 PM - 4:30 PMZoom

Sponsored by the Beth Meyer Progressive Kehillah and the Social Action Committee

What does Living a Progressive Jewish Life Look Like? Join us to hear stories of connecting Jewish values to action. 

Three Beth Meyer members, Alan KingSusannah Mundt, and Zach Wineburg, will share how their Jewish values influence the ways they offer support to individuals and communities and seek to create a more just and equitable world. Following the individual presentations, we will have a discussion to explore what it means to do mitzvot, to “be Jewish” and “do Jewish.” 

We are honored to hear from these three congregants and recognize that many others in our congregation also volunteer and find meaningful ways to make the world a better place. We want to hear from you! 

PK and Social Action are developing a booklet to shine a light on the work our members are doing to help those in need, locally and globally. We hope this will inspire others to infuse their lives with similar action and spiritual meaning. 

Please participate in this first booklet by sending an email by January 7, 2022, to PKatBethMeyer@gmail.com, with contact info, a description of what you do, and if you can, how it relates to your Jewish values. We look forward to seeing and hearing from you!
