Listening Process. From late September to October, house meetings will take place in congregations involved with B.R.E.A.D. Attend a house meeting in order to get to know people in your congregation, discuss community problems, and learn more about the justice ministry/Rodef Tzedek Network. Contact a Team Member in your congregation for house meeting dates. Not sure who to contact? Call the B.R.E.A.D. office at (614) 220-9363.
