Social Justice on a Shoestring Budget

For the New Yorkers among us, this class (co-sponsored by AJWS, Avodah, and Congregation B’nai Jeshurun) looks great. And it’s free.

Social Justice on a Shoestring Budget
This three-part series will explore the what, why and how of tzedakah: the religious imperative to make a difference.
Rabbi Brent Chaim Spodek of Congregation B’nai Jeshurun will facilitate this series on what Judaism says about philanthropy and social justice as a religious path and the challenges of identifying our values and putting our money where our hearts and minds are.
The first two classes will address the ethical and spiritual issues relating to tzedakah. The final class will have more of a practical focus. It will be taught by a financial expert who will provide advice and tips for how people starting out in NYC can put together a realistic budget for social change.
This program is brought to you by AVODAH, AJWS, and Congregation B’nai Jeshurun.
Date: January 15th, 22nd, and 29th
