Tuesday, April 13: Rabbi Nicole Auerbach speaks with Naftuli Moster of Young Advocates for Fair Education (Yaffed) about his advocacy to improve general studies education for Hasidic and Haredi children, enabling them to learn secular knowledge and skills alongside traditional curricula of Judaic studies.

From: 1:00 pm - 2:00pm
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought major changes to our lives—sheltering in place, physical distancing, new routines—and increased concerns about receiving the medical care we would need and want if we become seriously ill. In these uncertain times, one thing we can control is who will speak for us if we become unable to speak for ourselves. It is more essential than ever that the important people in your life understand what matters most to you should medical decisions need to be made on your behalf.
Join Rabbi Nicole Auerbach and Howard Sharfstein, Coordinator of What Matters initiative at Central Synagogue and former President of the Board of Trustees, on Tuesday, June 23 at 1:00pm for a webinar where we’ll review these important topics and give you the information you need to make your choices known, including walking you through the process of designating a health care proxy. This event is free and open to the public.
