Ruth Messinger, President of American Jewish World Service (AJWS) will speak in Boulder on Tuesday, November 8, at 7:00 p.m. at Congregation Har HaShem (North Building). The talk is co-sponsored by Congregations Har HaShem, Bonai Shalom and Nevei Kodesh.
Speaking from her experiences in developing countries—from Ethiopia to El Salvador, India to Ghana—Ruth will explain how American Jews can put pressure on our government to reform food aid policies that exacerbate hunger and poverty. She will also highlight the grassroots projects that AJWS supports in Africa, Asia and the Americas. Sharing testimonies from dedicated volunteers—students, community leaders and skilled professionals—Ruth will attest to the transformative impact we can make as global citizens working for a more just world.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to hear one of the American Jewish Community’s true visionary leaders.
A $5.00 donation at the door (cash or check) is suggested to cover costs. Any surplus will be donated to AJWS. Light refreshments will be provided.
