Tamar Manasseh: A Mom On A Mission
Fri, November 30 at 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm
How do you combat violence in your streets? Do you need to be a trained organizer in order to create change? Tamar Manasseh says “No.” Her response is to take a seat and give out hugs. Since 2015, when she founded MASK (Mothers AND Men Against Senseless Killings) in Chicago, she has worked to put eyes on the streets, interrupt violence and crime, and teach children to grow up as friends rather than enemies. She, along with a group of caring individuals in the community, began to simply hang out on the block, cook food, and emanate love. Come join us for a Shabbat Dinner where we will have the opportunity to hear Tamar’s story (MASK is only one component of it) and learn how to make change by doing.
Please join us for Kabbalat Shabbat beginning at 5:30pm before dinner.
Please enjoy the preview of the upcoming documentary about Tamar, directed and produced by Ansche Chesed member Brad Rothschild here.
