Rabbi Jeffrey Falick of Birmingham Temple will speak about his and other congregations' responses to the unjust and immoral immigration policies of the current administration. He will talk about why this is of particular urgency to his own Jewish community, why this should be of primary concern to all Americans, and how we can work together to make a difference. Providing context and perspective, Melanie Goldberg, a specialist in immigration law, will share some background about modern U.S. immigration legislation and policies, why change has been so difficult, and how the laws have evolved over the past several decades.
Two Peoples, One Future: What Would Palestinian AND Jewish Self-Determination Look Like In One State?
Thursday, May 24, 2018 from 7-9pm
Lecture by Prof. Brad Roth More and more Israelis and Palestinians—from across the ideological spectrum within each society— have come to question both the viability and the desirability of "the two-state solution." The declining prospects of the long-stalled Oslo process raise the question of alternative formulas for the realization of self-determination for both the Palestinian Arab and Israeli Jewish populations. Dr. Roth is a Professor of Political Science and Law. He teaches courses at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels in international law, human rights, political theory, and legal studies. The program will include a panel of respondents featuring Prof. Howard Lupovitch of Wayne State University's Cohn-Haddow Center for Judaic Studies. Presented in conjuction with the Huntington Woods Peace, Citizenship & Education Project.

Friday, September 15, 2017 from 7:30-9:30pm
Readings, Music, Short Talks, Refreshments, Conversations All are invited to join with people from diverse communities to honor refugees past and present and to get to know our neighbors by gathering together, and listening to each other’s stories. In 1939, the S.S. Saint Louis, carrying 937 Jewish refugees, was turned away from the United States and sent back to Europe; 254 of those people died in the Holocaust. With this program, we will remember them, and all previous refugees who found no welcoming land and honor those, from wherever they may come, who need refuge today. Our country’s gates are once again closing. We stand and struggle against this. We say “NEVER AGAIN” for anyone. Come join us to hear the stories; to be informed, inspired, resolved. PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO REGULAR SERVICE THIS EVENING.
