RESPONSA FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

EARLY MORNING STUDY WITH RABBI KALMANOFSKY The tradition of Jewish wisdom stretches back millennia, to times and places unimaginably different from our own. Sometimes we can apply ancient wisdom to modern problems, and sometimes that's not so easy. Each month we will study modern rabbinic attempts – mostly heterodox, sometimes more traditional – to answer today's questions, in areas like medical, social, economic, and political ethics. Second TUE of the month at 8:15AM

Speaker: Evie Litwok from the Suitcase Project

Every year, 700,000 people are released from prison. In the New York area alone, 50,000 are expected to reenter the community this year. “Too many of these returning citizens have no support network, and often remain on the streets, without access to any supportive resources,” says Evie Litwok, Founder and Executive Director of Witness to Mass Incarceration. People returning to the community after paying their debts to society deserve basic necessities.
