Human Rights Shabbat, starting at 7pm, Friday, Dec. 8

“Disease, sickness, and old age touch every family. Tragedy doesn't ask who you voted for. Health care is a basic human right.” -- Senator Elizabeth Warren Hoffman

With congregations connected to T'ruah around the country (the rabbinic call for human rights), we are hosting a Human Rights Shabbat celebrating the anniversary of the signing UN Declaration of Human Rights. This year, with Health Care taking the front page of our news, we stand with the founders of this declaration who in article 25 proclaimed that Health Care is a universal right.

We partner with the AIDS quilt and The Names Project so that we can put faces and stories to what happens when a country and a world do not value this right.

Please join us for a moving and noteworthy Shabbat observance. No one can be close-hearted in the presence of the living testament of the Quilt.

 

There are paid parking lots in the area, costing $5-$10.
We encourage you to carpool, take MARTA, or ride-share.

Service held at The Names Project The Names Project, 117 Luckie St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30303
