Justice Shabbat

Friday, January 13, 2023 20 Tevet 5783

7:30 PM - 9:00 PMTemple Beth El and Livestream

This Shabbat, we will be joined by special guest speaker, Vernisha Crawford, CEO of Trauma Informed Institute and BYE Foundation. After our recent weekend of reflection and exploration with Temple Beth El’s scholar-in-residence, Dr. Betsy Stone, we continue our commitment to mental health and addressing the effects of burnout and trauma. Mental health is not just a personal issue, it is a societal and justice issue. In order to work with others, we must first understand ourselves and those we seek to serve. One important step in that is understanding the science and physical reaction to experiencing trauma. Ms. Crawford will join us in prayer while discussing how becoming a trauma informed community will enable us to address these issues, both internally and externally – continuing the work of making the world a more just place.


Then on Sunday, January 15, join the City of Charlotte and a diverse group of clergy and congregations uptown for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. March and Wreath-laying Memorial Event

Finally, we are excited to officially launch the Civil Rights Journey this April! This weekend immersive experience is open to ALL Temple Beth El Members. We will visit significant historical sites around Atlanta, Selma, Montgomery, and Birmingham where we will hear first-hand accounts of the ongoing struggle for equality and reflect on our obligation as Reform Jews to continue the fight.
