The Social Action Committee (SAC) will host its annual Shabbat Advocacy Potluck Dinner in the Barshop Auditorium on Friday, October 26, at approximately 7:45 pm, immediately following Shabbat services. The theme of this year’s Advocacy Potluck Dinner is housing, specifically, the availability of affordable housing, and the related issues of homelessness and neighborhood gentrification. The SAC’s overall focus on human rights makes this evening an important and timely topic. Rabbi Samuel M. Stahl will introduce the topic and the speakers.

- .Lourdes Castro-Ramirez, Chair of the Mayor’s Housing Policy
- .Maria Berriozábal, Task Force member and former Councilwoman
