Hike Soldiers Delight Natural Environment Area with KHL

Sunday, April 29, 2018, 1:00 p.m. to about 3:30 p.m.  Depending on the group's ability and interest we will hike 3-5 miles. Hike in a most unusual and unique natural environment. We will pass through serpentine barrens, home to several rare plants, walk through tall grassy prairies reminiscent of the Midwest, and visit an abandoned chromite mine. Wear sturdy shoes; bring water and snacks.
Directions: Soldiers Delight Visitor Center, 5100 Deer Park Rd, Owings Mills, MD 21117. From I-695, Exit 18, take Liberty Road West approximately 5 miles and make a right on Deer Park Rd. Follow Deer Park for approximately 2 miles--the road to the visitor center will be on the left.  We will assemble near the entrance to the visitor center.
Leaders: Wendy Matt  443-858-0658 and Reuben Dagold 443-996-4772.

Literature at Lunch 

We have all found ourselves at some time in a situation where a person makes an anti-Semitic, racist, or sexist comment. How to respond? In Hortense Calisher's "Old Stock", 15-year-old Hester faces this dilemma as she observes adult hypocrisy and insensitivity by an elderly Christian, snobbish spinster, but also among her fellow Jews.  
In Richard Stern's wry story, "Wanderers," another aging Christian woman sees the Jews around her through a warped lens. 
Join Gail Lipsitz on Saturday, May 19 at noon to discuss these two short stories, which deal with the timely themes of stereotypes, loneliness, and how perspectives evolve through individual relationships. Copies of the stories, authors' bios, and background material on the figure of "The Wandering Jew" are available now in the Kol HaLev room at BMWPC.  

The Next Meeting of the Current Events Group. 

 Our group will meet next on Sunday, May 20 in the chapel at BMWPC from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. We will continue to look at actions taken against gun violence, particularly in schools since the February shooting in Florida. We note the March 24, March for Our Lives, and some legislative actions since. Florida and Vermont have taken meaningful action. Maryland has banned 'Bump stocks', and approved a 'red flag' measure to remove guns from people considered dangers to themselves or others. School safety will be enhanced with school safety officers and better planning, some already funded.  
CONTINUE TO PAY ATTENTION!  We will look at momentum and outline actions to keep it going!  (And there will be bagels! )
