FULL SPECTRUM
Oct 18, 7pm

What does "caring for your community" mean to a Jew in a multicultural society? Unsurprisingly, Jewish philosophers disagree. Through a "Thought Museum", we'll explore the many perspectives on what's Jewish about all the many kinds of "Jewish giving" and workshop our own personal views on Tikkun Olam, then bring them together in a community tapestry.

HAN SOLO'S TIKKUN OLAM:  CARING FOR "YOUR NEIGHBOR" IN A MULTICULTURAL GALAXY

Explore the diverse ways Jews (and scrumrats) can express tzedakah with Rabbi Jordan Helfman of Holy Blossom Temple and Izzy Waxman of MAZON Canada.


WE'RE SORRY TO SAY IT, BUT HUNGER KILLS.
YES, EVEN IN CANADA.

While it's true that few people starve completely to death in Canada, consistent hunger can affect health and life outcomes in many other ways - and so many of them can be  deathly serious.  Children without nutritious diets grow up at increased risk for chronic conditions like asthma and diabetes, as well as mental health issues like  depression and suicidal ideation. And for Canada's most vulnerable people -   children, seniors, people living on the streets or with significant illness - the added risk of a poor diet can be the last straw.

And in a recent UNICEF report on child well-being
in 41 wealthy countries, Canada ranked 37th!

That's why we pick grantees that change these long-term outcomes  for the better. Our grantees go so far beyond food. Sometimes the food we fund brings people to centres where they can access housing or mental health support; sometimes it brings them to better nutritional knowledge so they can raise healthy families on a budget; and sometimes it brings them to supportive community and hope. But from coast-to-coast, MAZON Canada is bringing organizations, mainly small and volunteer-run, the resources they need to not just feed their communities - but to change their stories

TOGETHER, WE CAN RISE TO #1!
