Wednesday Study Group, meeting In Rabbi Scheinberg's office in the Kaplan Building. 9:15 - 10:30 am. Currently studying Exodus. No prior education required; no prior knowledge required; no reservation required. This class is free.

Sat. April 26, after services at approximately 12:30, there will be a Shabbat lunchtime book discussion: My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel. The new book by Ari Shavit, commentator for Israel's Haaretz newspaper, has earned him both applause and criticism from both left wing and right wing sides of the Israeli political spectrum. Shavit describes his admiration and love for Israel while also sharing his unvarnished assessment of Israel's missteps and future challenges. Rabbi Scheinberg will moderate a discussion on Israel's past, present and future as informed by this book. Reading the book in advance, while encouraged, is not necessary to participate in the discussion. Free.
