Shabbat Sustenance: Great Texts of America – Letter from Birmingham Jail
Jan 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

As we remember and celebrate Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy, join us to study his revolutionary Letter from Birmingham Jail. In our ongoing project to rebuild the habits and skills of Democracy, we will apply the same Jewish questioning we use to address the Torah instead to some of the most important documents in our country’s history.  The conversation will be lively and bagels are provided!
