Plans are afoot to do some group Tikkun Olam (‘Repair of the World’) Volunteering at the Community First! Village. Rabbi Lev and several other CKH members had a tour there, and loved what we saw. Perhaps a good next step would be for more of us to learn more about this innovative village that provides homes for the homeless.
Saturday, June 29 is the Public Premiere of a new documentary about the village. The name of the documentary is “Community First, A Home for the Homeless”. It is being shown at the Village in their outdoor amphitheater, and it will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Layton Blaylock. The film is free but they say that a $5 donation would be much appreciated. Sign up for tickets
Bring lawn chairs, bug spray and dress for summer heat. There’s a concession stand that sells burgers, fries, snacks and drinks. It’d be great to get there by 6:30 or 7:00 to have time to park, put down chairs and wander around a bit to explore that amazing place.
