CONGREGATION B'NAI ISRAEL
FOCUS ON RACIAL JUSTICE

UPCOMING EVENTS
Dear fellow congregants,

We hope that you were able to participate in and enjoy Sacramento Faces Race, our community's annual set of teach-ins on racial justice and inequality. We're looking forward to next year!

Tonight, please join us for an Immigrant Justice Shabbat Service at CBI. Then, take a few minutes out of your Monday to call your elected Members of Congress and urge them to pass the Dream Act and save 800,000 young people from the threat of deportation. Lastly, consider representing CBI at the first Northern California convening of Reform CA leaders, next week.

We will see you there!

ServiceTONIGHT!


Monday
MONDAY!
Join the Reform Movement's National Call-in Day
to Urge Congress to Pass the Dream Act

This Monday, November 6, the Reform Movement has declared a National Call-in Day to push the Dream Act through Congress and save 800,000 young, long-time resident immigrants from exposure to deportation. 

The Religious Action Center has prepared two brief scripts  to call your M embers of Congress, either asking them to advocate for immediate passage of a clean Dream Act of 2017, or thanking  them for their co-sponsorship of the Dream Act of 2017.

Join the effort and take 10 minutes on Monday to call your representatives! Click the image below to find the scripts and links to the lists of co-sponsors and contact information for your elected officials. 


Attend the first Northern California Regional Gathering 
of Reform CA activists!

Bay Area / Northern California Regional Gathering
Sunday Nov 12, 9:45am-2:00pm
Congregation Beth El Berkeley
1301 Oxford St, Berkeley, CA

Join with Reform clergy and lay members in your region to share our social justice successes and challenges and to talk about how together we can build the California we dream of, a California of compassion, justice and wholeness. This will be an energizing day! You will come away from the gathering inspired by the work of other Reform congregational social justice teams, more deeply connected to Reform CA, motivated by the possibility of what we can accomplish together in California, and enriched by relationships with other Reform social justice leaders in your region. Lunch will be served.

In addition to registering via the link above, please let us know if you plan to attend.
