Reminder: Eat a Cheeseburger on September 26

Peacemonger reminds us of the 3rd Annual Bill Henry International Eat-a-Cheeseburger Day, coming soon. Sharpen your appetites for Wednesday, September 26, 2012, when we honor Bill Henry (né Herskovitz) for a decision that quite possibly saved an eight-year-old boy from a life of “Jewish chauvinism and exclusivism”. Since Eat-a-Cheeseburger Day follows the Jewish calendar, it actually starts at sunset on 9/25 and ends at sunset on 9/26.

For the full story behind this annual event please see last year’s post about this momentous day.

Sign thief Ira Levy might have dodged the justice bullet, but two vigilant Ann Arbor police officers nabbed a pickup truck driver who attempted to maliciously damage three of our signs by throwing them into busy Washtenaw Avenue. Before we could even say “stop that”, these two officers swooped down, barked “We’ll handle this” and properly detained the woman on the spot.

Join JWPF for CROP Walk

Our friends at the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice will again focus the attention of Ann Arbor on world hunger. From their web page, we find that CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty. JWPF will be represented at this year’s CROP walk in Ann Arbor, and we invite readers concerned with the poverty in Palestine resulting from the Jewish state’s ethnic cleansing program they call Zionism to join us and the Church World Service on Sunday, October 14, as we draw attention to the malnutrition in Gaza.

When: Sunday, October 14, 2012 Registration @ 1:00pm (walk at 2:00)
