Malkhut Community Social Action Shabbat

Malkhut cares about a just and equitable society for all. There are so many social issues that need attention in our world. This year, families chose racial justice, immigration, and climate change as their topics of focus. Throughout the year, the students in our Youth Institute explored their multifaceted Jewish identities and connection to social justice through storytelling, art, and learning. This month, it's time to put that learning into action! Join us for a special Social Action Shabbat, with a particular emphasis on climate change, and get active with Malkhut in the community of Jackson Heights.

Time: 9:30am
