Adult Ed Class - Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow.

Even if you missed the first session all are welcome to join Rabbi Steve for this engaging discussion on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the KHL room.  
Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow. What does the Kabbalistic tradition have to teach today’s seeker?  Are the ancient and mysterious symbols of any value to us, given the very different world in which we live?  How might Kabbalah be refitted so that it can serve as an appropriate vehicle for a very contemporary spiritual quest?  Can this be done without destroying the soul of the tradition?  Can a thinking person turn to an ancient wisdom source like Kabbalah without fleeing today’s reality and abandoning responsibility for life in this world? (From the preface of Art Green's book).
Text for the class: Green, A. (2004), Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow. Jewish Lights, Woodstock, VT. Available from Amazon and if you get it for Kindle Rabbi Steve will share his highlighting and notes.

Literature at Lunch 

Plan on joining Gail Lipsitz and Mary Dagold on Saturday, November 16 at noon as they discuss various works by Fred Katz, Karen Bender and Shira Naiman. Timed a week after the anniversary of Kristallnacht.  We will read in advance an extract from Fred Katz's book that focuses on the warning signs of the arrival of Fascism.  Our discussion will bring out parallels to what is happening today and what we can learn from the past.   We will supplement with 2 contemporary short stories that portray members of a threatened minority group and how they react to present fears and past history. Please read in advance the following selections: Click on each title to download: Ordinary People and Extraordinary Evil, ImmediacyConfronting Evil, The Porcelain Monkey, and Where to Hide in a Synagogue
