Get a “life lift” every Friday! Join Rabbi Becker for stimulating and provocative discussions based on the Torah portion, the Talmud and commentaries. Each week participants together will “plunge” into the sacred texts leading to challenging questions and healthy debate. In our pursuit of truth our thoughts crystallize and we emerge each week with “breakthrough” lessons that reshape our values, enhance our character and bring refreshing new meaning to our lives.

Gallery Chat: Actions of Faith & Conscience in the Desert @ Jewish History Museum
Oct 25 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us on Friday, October 25th at 11:00am for a Gallery Chat with Steve Saltonstall & John Hoelter, volunteers with Humane Borders, speaking about acts of conscience and faith in the Sonoran Desert.

Hoelter and Saltonstall will describe their efforts to aid refugees making the perilous journey on foot across the Sonoran Desert from death by dehydration and exposure. They will discuss the religious and political aspects of their work, including the universal need for compassion, and how institutional and systemic oppression continues impact attitudes and lives.

Stephen Lee Saltonstall is a volunteer water truck driver with the Tucson-based humanitarian organization Humane Borders. He is a mostly retired lawyer who concentrated on criminal defense work for indigent and low-income people, including a successful challenge to the now-defunct Massachusetts death penalty law, and cases for environmental groups and the American Civil Liberties Union.

John D. Hoelter is a third-generation, mostly retired Lutheran Pastor and was a Chaplain for Carondelet Hospice in Tucson. John has been a volunteer water truck driver for Humane Borders for more than a decade. He serves as a member of its Board of Directors.
