Or Shalom Synagogue, Rabbi Hannah Dresner, and the Tikkun Olam Co-ordinating Committee are delighted to announce, as part of Or Shalom’s ongoing commitment to Truth and Reconciliation:
KBE – KAIROS Blanket Exercise
Or Shalom sanctuary
November 28, 2021, 3-5 pm
followed by Chanukah candle lighting
The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an experiential workshop and sensitive teaching tool that explores the nation-to-nation relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in the northern part of Turtle Island, or what became known as Canada.
Or Shalom offers the Blanket Exercise as a Chanukah program, in keeping with out Tikkun Olam focus during this holiday – elevating lights in the world in which we live, in this case, acting to deepen our awareness of the Indigenous sanctuary, so profoundly violated.
To ensure that cost is not a barrier to anyone wishing to participate, no charge will be associated with this event. Donations are welcome.
Participation is capped at 40 adults and teens and pre-registration will be required.
Please note that we require presentation of the BC Vaccine Card, and COVID protocols will be in place.
Registration details to come!
