Pittsburgh Sweets, Cycle and Social Justice

Our first event was a success! Thank you so much to Scott Aaron for not only hosting our event, but also giving us beds, showers and a washing machine when we showed up a day early.

I was a bit nervous before and practiced giving my “speech” to the woods behind his house in Squirrel Hill:

I felt warmly welcomed by the folks that came and they told me that they truly felt like they were participants in an AVODAH program. We did introductions and everyone shared their name, where they worked and their basic job description and why they were compelled to come that evening. I gave a lesson, we discussed and shared our own stories and then we reflected on the evening: intention, and reflection. Thank you Pittsburgh!
