Following a short Shabbat service led by Rabbi Denise, we will view the film “Bending the Arc,” a powerful documentary about Partners in Health, an extraordinary team of doctors and activists—including Jim Yong Kim, Ophelia Dahl and Paul Farmer—whose work saving lives in Haiti grew into a global battle for the right to health for all. The film is 102 minutes long; it was an Official Selection at several prestigious film festivals including Sundance and Telluride.

Board President Mark Brender, who is also National Director of Partners in Health Canada, will speak to us about the work of his organization.

Jun 22 @ 12:00 PM
Join Oraynu as we continue to learn about and forge connections with Indigenous communities

The Na-Me-Res (Native Men’s Residence) Pow Wow is the largest Pow Wow in Canada and Oraynu is happy to participate. This event continues our commitment to Jewish/Indigenous reconciliation. When Jesse Wente spoke to our community he recommended attending a Pow Wow. There will be food, entertainment, and cultural programs. It is free to attend and promises to be a wonderful afternoon!

If you’re planning to attend and want to group up with other Oraynu-niks, let Evelyn Goldstein know (email her at: evelyngoldstein07@gmail.com) and she will arrange to meet up with you at the Fort York Visitor Centre just before noon.

Here is the Pow Wow information flyer for more details: https://www.nameres.org/annual-traditional-pow-wow/
