No one should be forced from their home during a pandemic. Unfortunately that may soon happen on a massive scale. Despite stop gap measures, the United States is headed towards an unprecedented eviction crisis due to COVID-19. Join the Suburban Hennepin Housing Coalition to learn more about local policies that could defend our neighbors, and how we can push for them in your city. Featuring a presentation from Margaret Kaplan, Executive Director, MN Housing Justice Center and discussion facilitated by Jewish Community Action staff. We welcome folks from all parts of the metro and state eager to fight for housing justice.

JCA and Hineni are excited to offer a four part learning and action series taught by Professor Earl Schwartz, with additional facilitation by JCA Organizer Aaron Berc and Hineni Director Sara Lynn Newberger titled Hag ha-Sukkot: The Shelters Festival. Over four weeks, we will explore the Talmud Tractate and Jewish thinking about shelter, housing, and home - questions as basic and pressing today as in Talmudic times. Participants will learn not only about the text but also how apply what we learn in the series to our work as Jews in struggle for a better world where everyone is housed. Study starts next September 16th, a few spots are still available!
