Fig Tree will partner with Repair the World and Muslims Against Hunger to prepare and package healthy food for people experiencing food/housing insecurity and homelessness, as part of the Muslims Against Hunger “Hunger Van” initiative.
After the food is packaged, we'll discuss hunger and food insecurity in NYC, as well as Dr. King's legacy.
Join us for a magical Friday Night Shabbat family service led by Rabbi Laurie Phillips & musical guests from Beineinu, followed by a catered pescatarian/ vegetarian dinner + wine/ beer. This family service will engage adults and kids; please make sure attendees both young and old are excited to experience a 45-minute Hebrew/ English Friday evening service with lots of music. All are welcome to attend, regardless of background.
Meaningful Purim fun for kids of all ages!
3:00 PM - Music and Rabbi-led “Megillah Light” for families with younger children. Costumes strongly encouraged!
4:15 PM - Rabbi-led Megillah reading, followed by service work to help those in need (in the true spirit of Purim!). For families with older children.
Wine, snacks and (of course) hamentaschen will be served.
