Rabbi Arik Ascherman will be visiting Seattle this weekend to spread the message about the organization that he co-founded in Israel, Rabbi for Human Rights. Rabbi Ascherman has visited Temple Beth Am a number of times over the past 15 years. The NW Committee to Welcome Rabbi Arik invites you to a Fund Raiser Luncheon on March 8th, noon to 1:30 at Suite 6100 at the Columbia Tower. Rabbi Ascherman will update about the work of RHR to support human rights of Israelis and Palestinians in Israel. There will be time for questions. Contact Tom Buchanan if you are interested in attending at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rabbi Ascherman will also speak at Rock the Shabbat service at Temple DeHirsch Sinai, 6pm, March 8 and will be co-leading Torah Study with Rabbi Jonathan at 9:15 AM at Temple Beth Am on Saturday, March 9.
Rabbi Arik has always been a voice with feet on the ground, encompassing many camps whether it be Israeli/Palestinian, Bedouin/Druze, Israelis in need of homes. His presentations are always hopeful and inspiring.
