Unsheltered in Place: Youth Homelessness and Jewish Action in the Bay Area
Join Moishe House Silicon Valley and Repair the World to discuss the modern civil rights issue of homelessness in the Bay Area. We’ll explore the dual impacts of racism and COVID on homeless youth, and local organizations that are working in our community to make change. We’ll also use text study to learn about Jewish thinking on shelter and community support. At the end of the training, participants will have the opportunity to sign up for a shift supporting the Tiny House Village in Oakland, California.

This session is a part of Jewbilee, For young adults ages 22-35.
