Graphic to go with text for Jade Kaplan's talk.

Long- time OZ member and Vermont Certified Nurse-Midwife Jade Kaplan will discuss her work in April 2023 as a volunteer midwife on the medical team of the humanitarian search and rescue ship Humanity 1.

Through a series of slides, Kaplan will illustrate her experience onboard, including her training; the crisis facing migrants desperate to reach Europe; and the rescue of 69 refugees that occurred during her month onboard. She will also discuss some of the causes of this migrant crisis.

About OZ’s Lunch and Learns

We gather at Ohavi Zedek’s Social Hall as an in-person event from noon to 1:15pm. (We are not using Zoom unless conditions change.)

A delicious lunch will be offered. Monthly speakers will cover a wide range of topics. Seating will be available for those who want to stay masked and not join us for lunch. Our goal is for everyone to feel comfortable and enjoy the talks.

The program is free, with an option to make a donation to support our programming.
