Human Rights Shabbat
On December 10, 1948, the United Nations unanimously approved the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Shabbatot before and after December 10 each year are dedicated to remembering the legacy of the Declaration and striving to advance the cause of Human Rights in the U.S. and around the world. This year's Human Rights Shabbat sermon focuses on the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and their groundbreaking Fair Food Program.
