6:30 PM - 9:00 PMRoom 5, lower level of Unitarians

Kabbalat Shabbat followed by potluck vegetarian supper and JED Talks - Jewish Education and Dialogue programs. Our members share their passions and interests. This month's JED talk is by Barbara Kagadan on the topic of genetic testing:

Genetic science is revolutionizing health care, but fear of genetic discrimination is preventing many Canadians from accessing it.  OrH member and Parliament Hill staffer Barbara Kagedan will talk about a bill that she helped draft to fix this, and clear the way for Canadians to have genetic testing without fear. Bill S-201 passed the Senate unanimously in April and is now before the House of Commons.
