Progressive Kehillah (PK) at Beth Meyer is a community within the larger Beth Meyer congregation that provides a space for those concerned with progressive political, social, and moral issues and their expression within the Beth Meyer community. This group was formed by members of Beth Meyer who are committed to infusing our Jewish life with the prophetic call for a world of social justice, human rights and dignity, compassion and non-violence. The intention is to offer opportunities for serious reflection and dialogue on issues that confront us as a community and a nation, as these speak to issues of critical social, moral and political significance. We recognize and honor the diversity of perspectives and ideas that constitute the Beth Meyer congregation. In that spirit we hope to encourage conversations that are reflective of a civil, respectful and caring community. We welcome the participation of all Beth Meyer members at our events.

Upcoming PK Events

Reproductive Rights and Health: Power and Possibilities
Sunday, Oct. 30 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Beit Am and Zoom
In the light of the recent US Supreme Court ruling regarding women’s rights to abortion, Progressive Kehillah at Beth Meyer Synagogue has organized a panel discussion to consider many of the detrimental implications of this decision, as well as avenues through which we can advocate for, and assist, those in need. We look forward to an evening that will both inform and empower with Lynne Walter, MSW, Advocacy & Organizing Manager Pro-Choice NC; Justine Orlovsky-Schnitler, Carolina Abortion Fund Director of Engagement; and George Tosky, MD OBGYN — who are closely involved in reproductive health decisions and the support of those most impacted by changes in the current legal and political environment.
