Occupy Philadelphia is starting the “People’s Law School.”

Occupy Philly has a sub-genre, which I have named "Occupy Judaism." Rabbis from the Reconstructionist branch of Judaism, including Rabbis Julie Greenberg and Mordechai Liebling, regularly visit the site. I participated today in the ceremonial blessing over the lulav (branches) and etrog (lemon) with Rabbi Lauren, who heads a congregation in West Philadelphia. The site’s Sukkah (ceremonial hut), which urges those that enter to "enjoy and respect the space," is her old Sukkah. There was a moving Kol Nidre service to commemorate the beginning of Yom Kippur.

The demonstrators include families with small children and a hunger striker. Artist RJ Smith is on Day 6 of a hunger strike. He will not feed until "Wall Street Ends the Greed." His fiancée begs, "Don’t Let Wall Street Kill My Fiancé."
