Rabbi Ariyeh Azriel of Temple Israel, leaders of Omaha Together One Community, Nebraska Appleseed and other organizations will hold a celebration of the 7th day of Hanukkah on Tuesday December 3rd 6:00-6:30 pm on 18th Street between Dodge and Douglas (outside the Federal Building). We will light the seven candles of the menorah to signify that we are bringing light into the world rather than cursing the darkness. We will pray that our members of Congress will be enlightened about the need to pass comprehensive immigration laws that include a clear, inclusive path to citizenship for aspiring Americans. All are welcome to join!

Upcoming Events: Nebraskans Against the Death Penalty Speaker

NADP19777607_BG1Nebraskans Against the Death Penalty Speaker

On April 20 at 4:00 p.m. Nebraskans Against the Death Penalty (NADP) will sponsor an eye-opening talk at Creighton University’s Harper Auditorium (602 N. 20th Street, Omaha). It will feature three very different people who all share one perspective – that the death penalty is broken, can’t be fixed, and should be repealed in Nebraska and elsewhere. Red Letter Christian activist, writer and speaker Shane Claiborne will address, “The Myth of Redemptive Violence, Who Would Jesus Execute?;” Curtis McCarty will share the heartbreak of spending 21 years on Death Row for a murder he did not commit; Victoria Coward, whose teenage son was shot to death, will explain why so many murder victims’ family members feel abused by the death penalty system. “These three compelling speakers will have people questioning the death penalty like never before,” said Stacy Anderson, NADP Executive Director. “The death penalty system hurts families, risks executing innocents and has people of faith raising questions.” Admission to the event is free, however space is limited.
