Hike Oregon Ridge Park with KHL

Join us Sunday, February 251:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Oregon Ridge Park. 
Tall trees in a mature forest, a fish filled stream, and a scenic pond surrounded by rhododendrons are some of the delights of this Baltimore County park. Depending on the group's ability and interest we will hike 3-5 miles. The trail is at times hilly, and there are rocks and exposed roots underfoot. Wear sturdy boots, bring water and snacks. Hiking stick optional.
Leaders: Wendy Matt  443-858-0658 and Reuben Dagold 443-996-4772.
Directions: from I-83: take exit 20, Shawan Road West. Go about 1 mile then turn left onto Beaver Dam Road, then immediately turn right into park , following signs for Nature Center.  

Literature at Lunch 

Join us Saturday, March 10 at noon for a pre-Passover program to discuss with Gail Lipsitz  "Hard Hearts and Hubris: Pharaoh and Macbeth"
 
The Exodus story tells us that Pharaohs' heart was hardened, either by himself or by God, 20 times. Pharaohs' repeated refusals to let the Israelites go are direct challenges to God's power. Even after 10 horrible plagues, culminating in the Exodus, Pharaoh regrets his decision and pursues the liberated slaves to the Red Sea.
 
Shakespeare's Macbeth is another tyrant whose psychological journey and hardened heart are similar to Pharaohs'. It is fascinating to compare these two rulers as both are brought down by hubris, or the "arrogance of power."  
 
What can we learn from Pharaoh and Macbeth about the psychological and emotional process of hardening one's heart? What are the consequences for that individual and for others?  We will compare key quotes from the play and from the Biblical Exodus story. A short synopsis of "Macbeth" is provided by clicking on the title and hard copies are available in the KHL room, for your review before meeting.
