Potluck Shabbat Dinner at 6:30 pm; Services will start at 7:30 pm.

As we did last year, Congregation Bet Haverim will be holding a special Shabbat service commemorating both Pride and Juneteenth.  In a time of vile attacks on our bedrock values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, there’s never been a better time to join together in celebration of the honor of all people, all created in the Divine image

Join us for an inspirational service featuring the CBH Chorus and Band, with special guest speaker Senator Kim Jackson.

Kim Jackson serves as Senator for Georgia State Senate District 41, representing portions of DeKalb County. Kim works every day to build a safer, fairer, and more prosperous Georgia and bring the diverse voices of her district to the Capitol: immigrants, refugees, and people living on the margins.

In her first years, Kim has defended our voting rights against relentless attacks; authored life-saving legislation for stalking victims which passed both chambers unanimously; secured unprecedented funds for Black farmers; started serving as co-chair of the Mental Health Caucus; and earned appointment to the Georgia Commission on Family Violence. In this year’s session, Kim passed legislation to create an Address Confidentiality Program for victims/survivors of domestic violence, stalking violence, and human trafficking. 

An Episcopal priest from the rural South, Kim made Georgia home over a decade ago. After graduating from Furman University, Kim volunteered as an EMT and led her colleagues at Emory’s Candler School of Theology to advocate for Criminal Justice Reform in Georgia. Upon receiving her Master of Divinity, Kim commenced her vocation as an Episcopal priest. Over the past 10 years of ministry, she has served as a college chaplain, a nationally renowned consultant and preacher, and a parish priest. As the Vicar of the Church of the Common Ground, Kim co-creates Church with people who are experiencing homelessness in downtown Atlanta.

Kim and her family live in Stone Mountain. She and her wife are stewards of a small urban farm in Georgia that hosts goats, ducks, honeybees, rabbits, and chickens.
