Literature at Lunch 

Mark your calendar to join Gail Lipsitz and Mary Dagold on Saturday, September 7 at noon as we begin our next session of Literature and Lunch for this year. Our discussion will be about the Israeli TV show "Shtisel."
 
How did an Israeli TV show about an ultra-Orthodox (Haredi) family living in Jerusalem become a global sensation? Come watch and discuss the first episode of this series that gives us a window into the lives of Jews who may seem very insular and foreign to us, but with whom we quickly discover we have much in common. The fictional characters experience hopes and dreams, love and loss, marriage, raising and educating children, intergenerational relationships, economic struggles, failures and successes. The show was created by two men with intimate knowledge of the ultra-Orthodox community, which is portrayed realistically and non-judgmentally. Beautifully written, acted and filmed, "Shtisel" "demystifies the Haredi community, reminding us that despite differences in how we may dress and practice Judaism, a core humanity connects us all."* The film is in Hebrew and Yiddish, with English subtitles. You are likely to get hooked on this series, which can be streamed from Netflix.

Adult Ed Class - Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow.

Join Rabbi Steve and Rabbi Geoff for this engaging 10 week session - 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).
You are invited to come for the learning and discussion on Monday evenings starting October 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the KHL room.
