Tuesday, October 20, 2020 2 Cheshvan 5781

7:30 PM - 9:00 PMvia Zoom

October Program - Guest speaker Dr. Jeffrey Vergo

This year, a focus of our Tzedek Committee is to help all of us recognize and respond to our own implicit biases.  For our first event of 5781, We are pleased to welcome as our guest speaker, Dr. Jeffery Vergo.  Dr. Vergo, who is a member of a local Reform Congregation, specializes in the treatment of trauma, racial reconciliation, and providing psychological services to historically underserved populations.  

When Dr. Vergo is not working at the local VA hospital, he is working to further the cause of racial equity in the United States through lectures and discussion groups on the importance of introspection as a route to racial healing. In his spare time, he enjoys roughhousing with his two young sons, hosting or attending Shabbat dinners, and anything related to Harry Potter. Dr. Vergo's long term goal is to successfully complete a full cycle of Daf Yomi, the daily regimen of learning the Oral Torah and its commentaries (also known as the Gemara).
