Shabbat Salon: Khurshida Begum

Friday, January 10, 2020 13 Tevet 5780

6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for our January Shabbat Salon, featuring guest speaker Khurshida Begum. Khurshida is the Executive Director of ASHHO, SPC. and will be speaking on human trafficking.



Khurshida Begum educates and challenges individuals and organizations to recognize human trafficking and its negative effect on all communities everywhere. Her mission is to urge people to understand this complex issue and to keep our vulnerable people protected from being exploited.

She founded ASHHO, which in Bengali means to “come” join the movement, because all people matter. ASHHO provides comprehensive training to educate and empower communities on human trafficking. Ms. Begum teaches by sharing her personal experience of being a trafficking survivor from Bangladesh. What she learned through her experience, and the strategies she used to overcome her situation, are instructive—both for survivors and those tasked with identifying or assisting them.



We begin with a full Shabbat service at 6:00 pm followed by a catered dinner and speaker in the Social Hall at 7:00 pm. The presentation begins between 7:45 and 8:00 pm, and the event typically concludes at 9:00 pm. You will enjoy a buffet-style vegetarian dinner. Each menu is specially created just for TBH!
