Tikkun Olam Workshop Details:

Grassroots Action to Address Homelessness

Following morning services in the Parlor
Join us for a workshop facilitated by Jeff Adberg demonstrating how neighbors are taking simple, direct action to make a difference–one home at a time. Jeff will introduce Facing Homelessness and The BLOCK Project. They will brief us on their field-tested programs, and share ways that anyone at KHN can get involved. Now is our opportunity to bring their efforts to West Seattle!


Making Lulav Local: Sustainable Sukkot

2pm in Anderson Hall
Explore what it means to live in a time of global climate change. Led by Aster Grisaffi, Ethan Trooskin-Zoller, Betsy Hoffmeister and Micah Ventura, in this hands-on workshop you will:

  • Learn about the four plant species used in traditional and local lulav.
  • Study interpretations of the symbolism of the lulav.
  • Understand the spiritual & ecological value of sourcing ritual elements locally.
  • Learn how to assemble your own lulav from local species.

While the plants in a traditionally lulav are grown in Israel, we will use local species that reflect the beauty and bounty of the PNW.

Our Yom Kippur bima arrangements will be live native PNW plants. Some will be reserved to grow into local lulav materials for future years, and some will be donated to the BLOCK Project to be used in landscaping on a current homesite project.
