Join JCAST Chicago, NCJW and Jewish Women’s Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago at Skokie’s Slice of Life for a lunch and learn with Rabbi Levi Lauer, founder of ATZUM, an Israeli organization that strives to remedy injustices in Israeli society and encourage individuals to become social activist agents of change. Rabbi Lauer is an amazing and inspirational speaker. Don’t miss this chance to meet him! In 2003, ATZUM joined forces with Kabiri-Nevo-Keidar and established the Task Force on Human Trafficking (TFHT) to help Israel eradicate human trafficking within its borders. The TFHT works tirelessly to engage and educate the public and government agencies to confront and eradicate modern slavery in Israel, and lobbies for reform in the areas of prevention, border closure, protection of escaped women, and prosecution of traffickers and pimps.
