V’Ahavta—“you shall love.” Why do we talk about love when we talk about NARCAN and harm reduction training? The late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shared his vision for the “Beloved Community.” And our own tradition instructs us: you shall love. Love God, love your neighbors, love the stranger among us. But Jewish tradition’s obligation to love is not about a swell of romantic feeling toward one’s intimates, nor is it a distant concept applied—rosy-eyed—to all of existence while guitar strums in the background. Love is about acts of care, empathy, kindness, and righteousness in our own families, our communities, and our neighborhoods. Join BeWell, The Blue Dove Foundation, and Selah for a one-hour training on Zoom.

This Community NARCAN Training is a hands-on opportunity to learn about how substance use affects the Jewish community (spoiler: much, much more than you think it does, and yes, if you’re wondering, you definitely know someone at risk of overdose right now), to become certified in the use and application of NARCAN to reverse a drug overdose, and to encounter Jewish wisdom to inspire us as harm reduction ambassadors. Each participant can choose to receive a NARCAN kit upon completion of the training.
