Please join us on Wednesday November 22 at 1:00 to meet Rabbi Arik Ascherman. He led Rabbis for Human Rights for 21 years, and has currently founded “Torat Tzedek” (Torah of Justice.) He is known for putting himself in physical danger in the defense of others, and is widely recognized as a leading Israeli advocate for universal human rights as a Jewish and Zionist obligation. Rabbi Ascherman will speak from the Jewish tradition about the state of Israel’s democracy, the blessings and challenges of power, and current human rights challenges regarding Palestinians, socio-economic justice for Israelis, African asylum seekers in Israel and Israel’s Bedouin citizens. This will be an informal afternoon, he will speak for about 15 minutes and then we’ll have time for Q & A and general discussion. Light refreshments will be served so please rsvp so we have enough.
Entrance is in the back lane across from Tim Horton’s. There is very limited parking here, please plan to park elsewhere, the lot across 84 Avenue (south of us) is the cheapest.
