Connecting through Storytelling: a Workshop Invitation

Our Avodah Social Action Group invites you to participate in a powerful workshop offered for our congregation by The Existence Project on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 from 6-8 pm. The project uses storytelling to connect housed and unhoused people: we will hear Serafina’s story as she shares her journey with us, and will witness her joy as she moves towards understanding and positive change. Participants in this workshop will leave with:

  • Understanding and compassion for the homeless experience
  • Baseline knowledge of what is working and what is not
  • An opportunity to reflect on what needs to change
  • A way forward for individuals and the group they represent to act

When supporting this workshop, Rabbi Harry wrote, “It is important for us to begin highlighting issues of local poverty…” Avodah believes this workshop can serve as a catalyst to looking more closely at the issues of poverty and homelessness. Please visit The Existence Project website to learn more.

Avodah would love to see you join us for this exceptional experience.  To RESERVE a spot*, email Jackie. An Eventbrite invitation to the workshop will be emailed to you.

*Please note that there are only 25 spaces available for this workshop.
