Yom Kippur- When Rights are Challenged, Standing UP with our Neighbors

Oct 5, 2022 - Oct 5, 2022 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join JCC's Center for Loving Kindness for an essential conversation about our responsibility to stand UP with our neighbors when their reproductive health rights, civic engagement rights, and gender identity rights are restricted. Our conversation will be highlighted with modern interpretations of the Yom Kippur confessional prayers. We will conclude with a contemporary Yizkor – Memorial Service.

This program provides the community with a spiritual way of better understanding the challenges our neighbors face. While each of us might have our own opinions, the JCC – as an agency – focuses on the impact on our neighbors and how we can stand UP with each other. We choose a values-based approach rather than a partisan approach.

The moderator, Lisa Schroeder, President and CEO of The Pittsburgh Foundation will guide us in a conversation with Sydney Etheredge, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania; Anna Hollis, President and CEO, Amachi Pittsburgh; and Lynz Sickler, Executive Director, Proud Haven.

The event will be held in JCC's Levinson Hall. Please enter the JCC through the Darlington entrance.
