Social Action Congregational Shabbat Dinner

Friday, February 16 at 7:30 PM

Celebrate the role of social action in our lives and community by helping us welcome a very special guest, a nationally known promoter of social justice who literally wrote the book on faith-based organizing, Kim Bobo. Bobo has authored a number of books on faith/social justice topics. She was named one of 14 “faith leaders to watch” in 2014 by the Center for American Progress, one of Utne Reader’s “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World” in 2009, and currently serves as Executive Director of Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy. “She is spiritually driven to do as much good for people as humanly possible,” said Frank McKinney, Chair of the Board for the Virginia Interfaith Center. “Kim exudes both enthusiasm and compassion for her chosen work."

While the dinner and Shabbat services are free, each guest is asked to bring contributions of an appetizer, main dish, side dish, or dessert to serve 8-10 adults. (No pork, shellfish, fish, chicken or beef please!)
