The Progressive Jewish Alliance is putting together a very apt event on the connections between Sukkot and homelessness. The deets, from the PJA:
Los Angeles is in the midst of a crisis. Safe, decent and affordable housing is beyond the reach of millions of Angelinos. Working families can barely afford to rent, let alone buy a home, and nearly 250,000 individuals will be homeless in LA County at some point this year.
This Sukkot, join PJA in an afternoon of art, learning and activism as we confront the issues of Housing and Homelessness in Los Angeles.
Come discuss the housing and homelessness crisis with PJA experts, participate in a text study with local rabbis, and find out what you can do to change housing policies.
Bring your kids for storytelling, games, arts and crafts.
