Shabbat Service

Date: October 25, 2019
Time: 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm

Our Shabbat Service on Friday evening is a wonderful way to end the week and welcome Shabbat. All are welcome as we connect with our prayers and ponder a topical or spiritual sermon. Melodies are drawn from tradition, from our Reform Jewish heritage and from contemporary composers.

October 27, almost a year ago, the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting shifted perceptions among American Jews. The next day, the Baltimore community gathered at BHC to show our defiance and our resilience. We continue that spirit at BHC’s Shabbat Service on Friday, October 25, 6:15 pm. Please join us in the spirit of community and strength. During the service, Doron Ezickson, ADL Regional Director (Washington, DC region) will address: “Tree of Life: Resilience and Resolve in Our Fight Against Hate.”

Israel today: Defending Civil and Human Rights

Conversation sponsored by New Israel Fund featuring:
Sharon Abraham-Weiss
Executive Director, Association for Civil Rights in Israel

Israel’s record as a western democracy is one of its most precious assets and a source of pride for supporters of Israel worldwide. Committed to safeguarding human and civil rights, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) is a pillar of Israel’s democracy, bringing precedent-setting litigation to the Supreme Court that has shaped Israel as we know it today.

Join us for an important and timely discussion with Sharon Abraham-Weiss, one of Israel’s foremost advocates for civil and human rights, on how ACRI’s legal work is making a lasting difference to strengthen democracy in Israel, and on the current challenges it faces. 

Attorney Sharon Abraham-Weiss has served as Executive Director of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel since 2014. Sharon spent seven years as a staff attorney at ACRI and served as the Tel Aviv and Central Israel Region Equal Employment Opportunity Commissioner. She was among the founders and a board member of Itach-Maaki – Women Lawyers for Social Justice. She holds an MPA from the Harvard Kennedy School and law degrees from Tel Aviv University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Sharon is married to artist Yoav Weiss and they have two daughters. The family lives in Tel Aviv.

The Association for Civil Rights in Israel, established in 1972, is Israel’s oldest and largest human rights organization and the only one dealing with the entire spectrum of human rights and civil liberties issues in Israel. Over the years, ACRI has achieved major advancements in a wide range of areas such as: freedom of expression; the right to privacy; freedom of and from religion; women’s rights; criminal justice; equality for Arab citizens; the gay and lesbian community, and other minority populations; migrant workers’ rights; and human rights in the Occupied Territories. More about ACRI at  www.acri.org.il/en/
