- Temple Sholom, 7190 Oak Street, Vancouver, BC
On Tuesday, June 10th, at 7pm, the New Israel Fund of Canada – a group dedicated to economic justice, human rights, religious pluralism, and women's rights – will be hosting two activists at Temple Sholom:
Itamar Hamiel will be joining us from Israel where he helps lead a breakthrough organization called Mahapach-Taghir that works with recent Russian immigrants, Bedouins, marginalized members of the religious Jewish community, and Arab-Israelis across Israel. Mahapach funds first-time community students who then come back to their villages and jump start programs specific to their village's needs, everything from public health to literacy to environmental cleanup efforts.
We are grateful to also be joined by a representative from Mission Possible who will describe the organization's work with residents of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Mission Possible not only provides street-level care for those in need, they also help individuals regain a sense of dignity, stability, and purpose through their programs that help DTES residents rejoin the workforce.
The event will be held at Temple Sholom, located at 7190 Oak Street (Oak and 55th). It is at 7pm on Tuesday, June 10th. Although the event is free, please reserve a spot at https://www.nifcan.org/our-events/upcoming/ (the link to register for the Vancouver event is at the bottom of the page).
