Join Rabbi Sharon Brous, Nathan Cummings Foundation President Simon Greer, and former Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti (invited) for a journey into the heart of social change in L.A. We begin at the historic, recently revitalized Breed Street Shul Project, where we will connect the rich story of Jewish immigration to contemporary immigrant stories. From there we travel to Homeboy Industries, a flagship model of social enterprise at the intersection of faith and justice. Our final stop is Sweet E’s, a Tav HaYosher-certified ("Ethical Seal") bakery, for a taste of the growing food movement. Between these visits, we will hear from leaders such as Kafi Blumenfeld (Liberty Hill Foundation), Alan van Capelle (Bend the Arc), Angelica Salas (Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of L.A.) and Rabbi Noah Farkas (Valley Beth Shalom) about the great strides taking place all over the city towards justice for all, and the Jewish community’s role in supporting them.
Meet the bus at 12:15 PM. Lunch is provided on the bus.
