Lunchtime Learning with Rabbi Bob - final session

The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah tell the story of the return from the first exile in ancient Babylonia. They contain the foundational ideas for our modern sense of Jewish identity. Living after the modern return from the second exile we will explore the meaning of Jewish existence in light of these texts from the early Second Temple period. As Jews we tend to focus on the sacred texts we read during services: Torah, Haftarot, Megillot and Psalms. In these sessions we explore the important contemporary lessons found in these less familiar sacred texts.

Knowledge 'n Nosh

The Lifelong Learning Committee invites you to join Ashley Rose and Harvey Segal in a discussion of the evening Haftarah portion:

2 Samuel 6:1-7:17; when David leads 30,000 Israelites to bring the Ark to Jerusalem.

Light refreshments will be served.

Program will take place in the library.
