Shabbat Shiur: Standing with the Stranger at the Border

Saturday, July 14, 1:15pm

Rabbi Amy Eilberg will invite us to study core Jewish teachings on treatment of the stranger in light of current realities in our society. She will then share about her trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, as part of mass demonstrations against the policies of separating and incarcerating immigrant families and reducing access to asylum. Rabbi Eilberg visited the Otay Mesa Detention Center, south of San Diego, on June 23rd as part of a 1,000-person demonstration organized by PICO California, a state-wide multi-faith, multi-racial community-organizing network.

Rabbi Eilberg is now working as Coordinator of Jewish Engagement for
Faith in Action Bay Area, which is a member of the coalition that organized the detention center visit.
