Can we talk about immigration in a moment when most citizens have lost the ability to talk about almost anything without tempers boiling?

Join us on Saturday, October 20, for “The Deep Complexities of Immigration: An Open Congregational Conversation.” (RSVP here)

We will start with a Shabbat Afternoon Nosh at 4:30pm, and our conversation will begin promptly at 5:00pm. After a respectful discussion of viewpoints and values that is worthy of Shabbat, we will conclude at 6:30pm by celebrating Havdalah together.

Since we became a sanctuary congregation in 2017, we have heard praise from many of you and pride in the work LBT has undertaken. We have also heard confusion, concerns, questions, and a yearning for an open exchange about immigration, deportation and asylum and the ways our temple addresses them. We want to answer your questions, learn from your experiences, and create an opportunity for us all to hear from each other about one of the most important topics in American life today.

At LBT we cherish our capacity to talk with one another about subjects that are multifaceted and challenging; the more complicated a discussion is, the more respectfully we navigate it together. And one thing upon which we can all agree: our country needs this discipline and decency now more than ever.

Our goal is to host an event which will continue the great tradition of our Jewish people and our Temple… of wrestling together with hard issues and emerging stronger for it.

Your participation is essential for that to happen. Please come – and RSVP online HERE.
