Join us for a Weekend of Hope, Healing and Service

This January, all eyes will be on Washington, D.C., as the city hosts a presidential inauguration and a historic march for unity, among other events. We invite you to mark the moment by joining us for Shabbat dinner and day of service in our nation’s capital. Together, we will engage in meaningful conversation about the issues that matter to our communities, discuss ideas for strengthening civil discourse and take time to meet and serve D.C. neighbors in need.

What is the Weekend of Hope, Healing and Service?
 
The Weekend of Hope, Healing and Service includes a Shabbat dinner on Friday, January 20, and a day of service on Sunday, January 22, as part of Repair the World’s Act Now for Racial Justice Campaign. It is an opportunity for people to come together, engage in forward-thinking conversation about the future of our country and participate in local service projects. 
 
Why are you organizing this weekend?
 
We believe that each of us has a role to play in healing painful divides in our communities, strengthening civil discourse, stepping up as champions and allies for important causes and helping others to do the same. The weekend's events are designed to offer attendees the chance to reflect, connect and gain the inspiration they need to be active participants in shaping an inclusive future for our country.
 
Who will be participating?
 
The Weekend of Hope, Healing and Service is designed to be inclusive of people of all backgrounds, faiths and perspectives who want to engage in constructive dialogue. The dinner and day of service will bring together young adults, entrepreneurs, nonprofit professionals and engaged citizens from across the country.
 
Who should I contact with questions?
