Last One to Repair the World…

2-4-6-8- Who Do We Appreciate!

On Saturday February 1, the Or Shalom Sisterhood and Social Action Committee teamed up to host a screening of the movie Crime After Crime. More than 20 people braved the cold to watch this powerful story about the legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, an incarcerated survivor of domestic violence.

Together, we raised more than $741 for organizations that support domestic violence survivors! Kudos to everyone who made this program a success:

  • Sponsors Julie and Harris Miller, Gina and Mike Arlen, Houston Jewish Community, and Ellen Gross
  • Sharon LiebhaberRabbi Jacob, and Ellen Austin for their enlightening panel discussion
  • Larry and Matt Bilker for the audio-visual (and popcorn) set up
  • Paula Blaustein for preparing the snacks and drinks
  • Beth Burak and BettyAnn Monash for their ticket-taking help
