Repair the World NYC invites you to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this MLK Weekend through learning and service.
Action in a Time of Injustice: MLK Shabbat Dinner
On Friday, January 13, 2017 Repair the World NYC is hosting "Action in a Time of Injustice: MLK Shabbat Dinner" with OneTable at the Picnic House in Prospect Park to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through a conversation about the Jewish community as allies within the sphere of racial justice. Yavilah McCoy, the CEO of Visions Ince, will be interviewed by Yehudah Webster. Together we’ll explore how we can take action in our local community and #TurnTheTables on injustice. Check out our MLK Shabbat section for details.
Meaningful Service Opportunities
Over the course of the weekend, we are offering opportunities to do a meaningful service project, contextualize our experience through facilitated service-learning, and join a coalition of Jewish organizations and partners coming together to have a positive impact on our community. Check out our Volunteer in Brooklyn and Volunteer in Manhattan sections for details about all of our projects.
