Struggle for Shelter: EVICTED Book Group

Montgomery County
Maryland State

Join JUFJ activists from across DC and Maryland to discuss "EVICTED: Poverty and Profit in the American City" by Matthew Desmond. We'll use the book to explore our local affordable housing crisis and get ready for our Sukkot event, Struggle for Shelter, including a trip to the EVICTED exhibit at the National Building Museum.

Sukkot Harvest Celebration

Common Good City Farm
300 V St NW, Washington, DC

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.


Struggle for Shelter: EVICTED Exhibit

National Building Museum
401 F St NW, Washington, DC

Join JUFJ activists to observe Sukkot by learning about the housing crisis in our cities and our region. We'll go on a guided tour of the EVICTED exhibit at the National Building Museum together, then discuss the exhibit and what it means to celebrate shelter when so many people can't afford it.
