First Unitarian Society
900 University Bay Drive, Madison
Rabbi Arik Ascherman has dedicated his life to upholding the Jewish tradition of universal human rights, winning victories for Palestinians and unemployed Israelis alike, and sometimes placing himself in physical danger. After leading Rabbis For Human Rights for 21 years, Rabbi Ascherman recently founded Torat Tzedek/Torah of Justice.
In addition to speaking generally about Torat Tzedek, he will focus on some of the communities in Israel and Palestine that are in immediate danger, and reflect more broadly on the challenge of power, and whether Israel can still be called a democracy.
Free & open to the public. Donations will be graciously accepted to support Torat Tzedek.
Co-sponsored by First Unitarian Society, J Street Madison, the Bethlehem Project of the Wisconsin Conference, United Church of Christ; Jewish Voice for Peace Madison Chapter; Shaarei Shamayim Inclusive Jewish Community; Bright Stars of Bethlehem; and Madison-Rafah Sister City Project.
