March 23, 2018 –
On Friday, March 23 at 6:15 p.m., we will welcome a special speaker to our Shabbat Service, which will be led by Rabbi-Educator Jordana Chernow-Reader with guest Cantorial Soloist Jennifer Woda. Aaron Marks, who has been in addiction recovery for almost 13 years, Chair of prevention and education efforts on the U.S. Attorney of Northern Ohio Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Addiction, will speak on the issues of opioid misuse and addiction. His presentation is part of an initiative sponsored by the Greater Cleveland Board of Rabbis to highlight the crisis during the Shabbat services of local Cleveland congregations in March.
In a Cleveland Jewish News article in May, Aaron Marks shared how “Years ago, there were a handful of us who were kind of standing there sounding the alarm. This is a systemic problem that has really infiltrated our society.”
Please join us for this opportunity to hear and learn more about this devastating epidemic.
