Blu Greenberg Lunch and Learn // 7.12.19

Blu Greenberg is the originator of an apt and now famous dictum—“Where there’s a rabbinic will, there’s a halakhic way.”

Blu Greenberg has long been active in Jewish feminism and is the founder of JOFA (Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance). She writes and lectures on matters of contemporary Jewish interest, serves on several Jewish communal boards, and has been involved in interfaith dialogue for four decades.

She is currently active in the work of the International Beit Din, a court dedicated to resolving difficult aguna cases through the application of systemic, halakhic solutions.

Service Project: Kindred Kitchen

July 21, 2019 | 4-7 pm

Women Repair the World will meet in the Northeast Minneapolis commercial kitchen at Appetite for Change and spend about an hour cooking a full meal for the summer youth training and opportunity program participants.  Participants are teens aged 14-17 who run the west broadway farmers market, including growing the food and facilitate community cook workshops.  We’ll also spend time learning about Appetite for Change and Kindred Kitchen as well as participating in a group dialogue about a key issue.
