Literature at Lunch 

Mark your calendars: Literature at Lunch with Gail Lipsitz will meet at noon to 2:00 p.m. on the following dates: October 20, December 15, March 16 and May 18. 
In July 2018, a Gallup poll found that "Immigration Surged to the Top" of the list of what Americans identified as the most important problems facing our nation.  Not surprising.  Dominating political discussions and featured daily in the news, immigration has become a most troubling and controversial issue, prompting soul-searching and discussions about the essence of America.  How might the history of Jewish immigration to the United States in the early 20th century shed light on the experiences of immigrants today? Join our discussion of "Newcomersthe theme of the first Literature and Lunch on October 20.  We will discuss a mix of short stories and excerpts from actual accounts: 
 "The Lie" by Mary Antin (1913)
            "Fanny Herself" by Edna Ferber (1917)
            "A Walker in the City" by Alfred Kazin (1951)
            "Bronx Primitive" by Kate Simon (1982)
Emma Lazarus - Steve Schwartz Sermon Yom Kippur sermon, 5770
We recommend that you read the stories before our meetings so that we can enjoy lively discussions in which all participate.  Click on each title to read online or copies of the materials are available in the Kol HaLev room. To view the readings for the December gathering click here.

Wise Aging

“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you was?”—Leroy “Satchel” Paige.
Remember “Satchel” Paige?  He was a great African American pitcher who didn't get the
opportunity to pitch in the Major Leagues until 1948, when he was 46 years old and he actually pitched in the Majors until he was 63!  Well, not all of us can be like Satchel Paige,
but the question he asked is one that we all should ponder from time to time.  After all, the
number of years on the calendar doesn't necessarily reflect how “old” we feel
or what our capabilities or interests may be.
At Kol HaLev, we are planning to provide you with an opportunity to share experiences and ideas about aging well and wisely. So if you’d like to explore the whys and wherefores of getting older, come join us for a series of four small group sessions on “Wise Aging.” The next session will be Sunday morning, October 28 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. in the Kol HaLev room. Participants are asked to pay an $18 fee and purchase a book used during the sessions. To make this project a success we need participants.

New Adult Ed Class - "Practical Theology"

Rabbi Geoff and Rabbi Steve Silvern will help guide an exploration of various approaches to life and the idea(s) of God, presenting different lenses through which we see the cosmos and our daily decisions. It is an opportunity to learn together about our knowing and seeking and doing, or doing and seeking and knowing. We are interested in the stuff of lived life and how we live meaningfully — what and how we eat, earning and spending money, relationships, ethical action — finding our way through and out of the proverbial “woods.” You are invited to join the learning and discussion on any Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. in the KHL room.
