Matir Assurim: God Who Frees Prisoners – Shabbat Dinner of MLK Weekend

Fri, January 13 at 6:30 pm

One of Judaism’s major spiritual motifs is that God liberates the imprisoned, enabling them to begin again. This resonates in American life today: With so much incarceration, there are also many organizations devoted to helping people begin anew upon release, and examining the system that jails so many.
On Martin Luther King weekend, what can we learn about spiritual and social liberation by studying how people leave physical prisons?
Please join AC member Ben Metsch, vice president of the Fortune Society, as well as some of the Fortune Society’s clients, to discuss incarceration and liberation in America today.
Please REGISTER HERE by noon on Wednesday, January 11.
