To fix this, the Montgomery County State Delegation is considering legislation to protect tenants from unfair evictions. Join Delegate Jheanelle Wilkins and the Montgomery County community to learn about evictions in Montgomery County, understand Just Cause, and ask questions!Find out more »
Join JUFJ, along with partners Gather DC and OneTable, on an urban farm in Shaw to celebrate the season's bounty with hands-on workshops and a farm-to-Sukkah feast grounded in the themes of the agricultural harvest festival.
Amanda Herring, OneTable's JOFEE fellow, Mollie Sharfman from GatherDC, and Elizabeth Heyman from Jews United for Justice invite you to end your week by taking a pause from the busyness of the city to connect with nature and eat from the harvest at Common Good City Farm. From a pickling lesson to tasting local seasonal ciders, we will come together and celebrate abundance both on the farm and in our lives.
This event is supported by a grant from The Jewish Food Experience, a program of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
This event is targeted to young adults in their 20s and 30s. If the cost is prohibitive, please contact us to discuss discounted tickets.Find out more »
