Arik Ascherman has dedicated his life to upholding the Jewish tradition of universal human rights, fighting alongside Palestinians and Israelis alike. After leading “Rabbis For Human Rights” for 21 years, Rabbi Ascherman recently founded “Torat Tzedek-Torah of Justice.”
Rabbi Ascherman will introduce Torat Tzedek and speak about his work to prevent the destruction of Negev Bedouin villages and the villages of Khan Al Akhar and Susya in the West Bank. He will also reflect more broadly on the structure of power in Israel and whether Israel can still be called a democracy.
Please invite others whom you think might be interested.
A $5 lunch is available at the church from 11:30 a.m. to Noon.
Following Arik’s talk there will be a reception at the home of Craig Oettinger, 5015 Crawford St., Houston 77004, near the church.
Donations to support Torat Tzedek will be accepted.
