The speaker for the first Sisterhood-sponsored Kabbalat Shabbat dinner and speaker on Friday, November 1, 2013, 7:30 PM, will be temple member Jacqueline Levine, topic: "Life of Activism and Advocacy." For over six decades, Jacqueline Levine has served the Jewish community and has been involved in key moments of civil rights, women's rights and the movement to free Soviet Jewry. Her life of activism and advocacy reflects her search for perfection in the world, as she said, “I believe deeply that I have to follow the mandates of our prophets: to seek peace, justice, equality, freedom and to do that through a dual prism” of taking care of Jews and “all humankind.”
