Occupy Shabbat this weekend!
Occupy Shabbat is happening in four cities this weekend!
Want to Occupy Shabbat in your community? Here’s how!
Shabbat is a reflection of a redeemed world – a taste of the World to Come. In that time, writes the rabbinic sage Rambam, humanity will be free “without anyone to oppress or disturb them. In that era there will be neither famine nor war, neither envy nor competition, for good things will flow in abundance and all delights will be as freely available as dust.”
With the aspiration in mind of an abundant world for everyone, this weekend is AJWS’s Global Hunger Shabbat – “a weekend of nationwide solidarity, learning and reflection around food justice. The learning and exploring of Global Hunger Shabbat is designed as a springboard into meaningful action over the following weeks and months, as we mobilize the American Jewish community in the fight for food justice.”
The issue of food justice is deeply entwined with the issue of economic justice being pursued by the protesters at Occupy Wall Street and at occupations around the nation and the world.
