Does the holiday frenzy and focus on consumerism get you down?

Join us to prepare for a joyful, socially-conscious holiday season. Browse fair trade and sweatshop-free gifts, taste delicious organic latkes (with recipes to take home), and reflect on how Jewish ethical traditions can help us have a meaningful Chanukah.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., program begins at 7 p.m.

Details available upon R.S.V.P. to rabbibridget [at] jgate.org.

Rabbi Bridget Wynne will facilitate a brief discussion connecting social justice, Jewish values, and ethical consumerism. Following the discussion you will have a chance to taste more latkes, and to browse and purchase gifts (at a discount) from local and online fair trade stores. We suggest you bring some gelt if you'd like to get your holiday shopping done early! Beautiful artisan wares and fair trade food will be on site from Global Goods Partners http://www.globalgoodspartners.org, World of Good http://www.worldofgood.org, Global Exchange http://www.globalexchange.org, Thanksgiving Coffee http://www.thanksgivingcoffee.com, and others.
