Senior Sponsored Lunch and Learn Program: What Makes a People

What makes a people? For nearly 1000 years Jewish people have been split into two major groups, Sephardic and Ashkenazik.

Explore with Rabbi Kamil the history of each, the differences between them and, more importantly, the similarities which bind the Jewish community throughout the world. Some of the foods that we eat may differ, but we are responding to the same dietary laws. Some of our Shabbat traditions may differ, but we still come togeher in our understanding that peoplehood can transcend differences. 

Wednesday, February 20th.
