TBS Tzedek Presents:  One Dreamer's Story

On Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 7:30 PM, please join TBS Tzedek to hear Elias Rosenfeld speak in the TBS Sanctuary.  A question-and-answer discussion period will follow. Elias, Brandeis ’20, emigrated legally from Venezuela to the U.S. with his mom and little sister when he was six.  Then he lost his mom to cancer when he was in the 6th grade.  What he didn’t know at the time was that her passing meant he and his sister would also lose their legal status in this country.  Rosenfeld is a participant in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program.  Like all DACA recipients, he faces an uncertain future unless Congress and the President can reach a compromise to provide them with permanent legal status.  Unlike many DACAs who fear going public about their status, Rosenfeld has shared his story all over the country.  He has been the subject of national media reports and speeches with Joe Kennedy III, Senator Ed Markey, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Rabbi Pesner and has interned with Senator Elizabeth Warren.

An Inspiring Shabbat Service:  "Prophetic Power & Politics: How Reform Jews Can Create a More Just World"

On Friday, November 16, 2018 at 6:15 PM, please join us for a special service. Our guest, Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner, Executive Director of the Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism, is an inspirational leader and tireless advocate for social justice. Named  as one of the most influential rabbis in the United States by Newsweek magazine, Rabbi Pesner encourages Jewish communities to reach across lines of race, class, and faith in campaigns for social justice. He will call us to action and outline concrete steps we can take as individuals, as a congregation, and as a movement for Tikkun Olam.
