Caring for Our People: A Talk With Rabbi Tamir Nir of Achva B'Kerem
Wednesday, November 29th at 8:00 pm (On Zoom only)


Since the heartbreaking assault on October 7th, Rabbi Nir's congregation has become an impromptu resettlement and refugee services area. They have been providing meals, tutoring, and other services as displaced people from the south of Israel get temporarily settled in Jerusalem. They have even sent teams to keep people's farms tended and healthy!

Rabbi Nir serves as the congregational Rabbi for Congregation Achva Bakerem, which he founded in 2007. Tamir teaches Jewish and Islamic thought in a high school for religious and secular Israelis. He served recently as Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem where he bridged differences between the many diverse communities that make up the city, as the head of the BINA Secular Yeshiva, and as chair of the Heschel Center for Sustainability. Rabbi Nir is an ordained Reform Rabbi, who has an MA in Jewish Education and a BA in Architecture and Urban Planning.

Join us to learn more about how things are for these refugees and get a sense of the compassionate needs to help carry people through the next few months. Zoom details will be provided upon registration.
