Sons of Congo: Making a Difference in our World, One Person at a Time

Join Ahavat Torah for a service themed around Sons of Congo! Please RSVP at (310) 362-1111.

Program:

  • 9:00AM – Deut. 21:10-11
  • 10 – 12:00PM- Theme Integrated into Service

Sons of Congo is a men’s mentorship program. This program is aimed at creating a social change movement for the protection of women in the Congo. Sons of Congo provides a curriculum that draws on biblical lessons to demonstrate how women should be valued and respected.

We will be looking deeply into biblical texts and Judeo-Christian religion and traditions to explore the following questions:

  • Can people really change?
  • Can a culture of violence against women become a culture of value, respect and guardianship?
  • Can our religious teachings make an impact?
  • How can I be a part of this global healing movement?

All are welcome!

When: Saturday, January 31st
Where: Ahavat Torah Service, 343 So. Church Lane, L.A. 90049
