Join the Social Justice Roundtable this Sunday along with guest speaker, Rabbi Michael Pollack. We will be focusing on Abraham and his struggles and journey away from the capital city of the empire, Ur. We will study how Abraham rejected the materialism and militarism of an idol-worshiping empire, and how we can, in our own time, smash the ideology of idolatry that undergirds our empire.
Rabbi Pollack grew up in Maryland. During his last year of rabbinical school in 2016 in Philadelphia, he co-founded March on Harrisburg, a group dedicated to making corruption illegal and taking our democracy where it’s never been before by passing anti-corruption, pro-democracy bills in PA. Michael is also a statewide tri-chair of the PA Poor People’s Campaign. His hobbies include convincing politicians to not be corrupt, long marches through the Pennsylvania countryside, and sitting down in inconvenient places in the State Capitol.
The requirement of masks is based on the current COVID community risk level in Dauphin County. Masks are required for medium or high risk levels; they are optional when the county is in the low risk level. The current level will be posted on the front doors of the church.
