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.

Blu is also spending the weekend with Congregation Darchei Noam. Click here to learn more.

Community Cooks Workshop

July 21, 2019 | 4-7 pm

Women Repair the World will spend the afternoon cooking, creating community, and engaging in meaningful conversation in partnership with Appetite for Change.

At this WRW Community Cooks workshop, we will prepare food for AFC’s summer training and opportunity program interns.  A group of about 35 teens from north Minneapolis, these interns spend their summer growing food, running the west broadway farmers market, and facilitating community cook workshops.  The WRW ticket price will be donated to Appetite for Change to offset programming and food costs.
