Literature at Lunch 

Join Gail Lipsitz at noon on March 23, 2019 (Please note: this is a new date.) for our next discussion of "INDECENT", a Play by Paula Vogel.
Follow the true story of a play, a playwright, and a plucky troupe of Yiddish theater artists from 1906 Warsaw, to 1923 Broadway, to 1943 Lodz Ghetto in Poland, to 2017 Broadway. Sholem Asch's play "God of Vengeance" moved from risky experiment to global sensation—and ultimately shattering scandal. This is the story dramatized by Paula Vogel in her 2017 play, "Indecent." The latest hit from the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of A Civil War Christmas, The Baltimore Waltz, and How I Learned to Drive, Indecent pays homage to artists ahead of their time and doomed to pay the price. Read and see this fascinating play, and bring your reactions to our discussion. "Indecent" comes alive at Center Stage (including a klezmer band), directed by Eric Rosen, from February 28-March 31, 2019. We highly recommend that you see the play before our meeting on March 23.
 
"Indecent" was published in paperback (75 pages) in 2017 by Theatre Communications Group, Inc., 520 Eighth Avenue, 24th Floor, New York, NY 10018-4156.
 

Adult Ed Class - "Practical Theology - Part II" 

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.” Part II of our Practical Theology conversation will focus on the Reconstructionist approach: living a values-based life. It is about "applied" Judaism, living out of our beliefs, assumptions and values. We might call this "the practical expressions of Godliness." You are invited to join the learning and discussion on any Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. in the KHL room.
