Upstander Training (Mar 30, 2017; 7-9pm)
Upstander workshops are designed to equip those facing hate and violence with de-escalation skills and basic self-defense techniques. Additionally, this training empowers bystanders with the tools they need to help those facing harassment by choosing intentionally from a continuum of tactics. These two approaches combined offer New Yorkers unique and critical options for keeping our communities as safe as possible and mitigating violence.

Interview w/ Rabbi Ellen Lippmann & Dr. Debbie Almontaser live taping for the podcast, Person Place Thing with Randy Cohen (Apr 3, 2017; 7-9pm)
Rabbi Lippmann and Dr. Almontaser, a rabbi and a Muslim activist, will be talking with each other live on our bima as they are interviewed by Randy Cohen of the podcast Person Place Thing. They will be discussing: activism, the President’s Muslim ban, and this moment when our faiths and people must come together to say yes to democracy and justice. We really hope you can come out to hear their discussion and support the interview.
Person Place Thing Podcast with Randy Cohen is an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result? Surprising stories from great talkers.
