Ways to Pray With Our Feet

Here are a couple of concrete actions that you and your communities can engage in, and which we encourage you to share with others:

1) Participate in a training that seeks to not only address the rise of Neo-Nazis but also the dismantling of environmental protections and human rights. To respond effectively, we need to understand how we got here and we need a long-term strategy to shift the tide. This training will be led by ALEPH Ordination Program rabbinical student Cat Zavis. Please share it with others in your community. www.spiritualprogressives.org/training

2) To support the local Charlottesville synagogue Congregation Beth Israel, of which our ALEPH Ordination Program cantorial student Sharon McCord is a member, please donate to this GoFundMe campaign – https://www.gofundme.com/congregation-beth-israel-cville

The Aleph-affilliated P’nai Yisrael Chavurah which includes AOP graduates and students as leaders and members, needs security provided through the UVA Hillel where they meet, and which can be supported at:  http://www.brodyjewishcenter.org/support-us.html
