Tzedek, Tzedek Tirdof: Jewish Principles of Harm Reduction
Our June 20 OLM and Table Lodge
The Jewish principle of pikuach Nefesh demands that we throw almost all rules aside in the pursuit of saving life. How do we apply that principle to substance use?
Get some insight into this issue from Joel Dworkin, HAMSA Program Manager, JF&CS Atlanta, our Table Lodge speaker for our June 20, OLM at Congregation Or Hadash, 7460 Trowbridge Road, Sandy Springs.
We'll have snacks and schmoozing for HOD brethren at 7 p.m., followed by our OLM at 7:30. Our Table Lodge dinner and program should begin around 8:30 p.m., and it is open to HOD guests.
Dress is business casual.
Busloads for Birthright
Beautiful Day for a Bus Ride. Let's Fill Two!
Busloads for Birthright has been an outstanding success! Led by our Brother Gary Rosenshein and others, Atlanta Lodges raised $1,250 for the Birthright Israel Foundation, but that wasn't all. A huge donation and triple matching has helped the lodges in North American Governing Lodge roar past our goal of raising $180,000 to fill a bus. We only need $5,000 more to fill the second bus - and that includes triple matching!.
So, let's put the pedal to the metal and fill the half-dozen or seats for the second bus. Click here to learn more and donate. It's a public page where your friends and family can donate, too.
