Join us for a special Shabbat service, when Stav Shaffir — the youngest-ever female Member of Knesset — will speak from the bima. Now in her second term, MK Shaffir chairs the Social Justice Caucus and the Transparency Committee, fighting for budget transparency and an end to corruption.
Formerly a journalist and peace activist, she was a leader of the social justice movement that erupted in the summer of 2011, focused on housing, equality and democracy. She studied at the City University of London on a special scholarship for conflict resolution, and at Tel Aviv University.
Following Friday night services, there will be an extra-celebratory oneg—a modern spin on the Shabbat Kallah, a traditional pre-wedding celebration.
