II. Special Events – October/November
“Reform Judaism: Why We Do What We Do”, With Rabbbi Renni S. Altman DD
Three Thursdays 7:30pm-9pm
MARCH 14 & 21, APRIL 11
This March marks the 200th birthday of Rabbi Isaac Meyer Wise, the founder of Reform Judaism. Along with many other Reform congregations, we will mark this occasion through study, tracing the development of the movement known as Reform Judaism that Wise initiated in the latter part of the 19th century. Rabbi Altman will lead this 3 part series whose primary focus will be an exploration of the movement’s platforms and its prayer books. Each, in different ways, serves as a reflection of how Reform Judaism was practiced in its time, and will provide the background to understanding how the movement got to where it is today and why we “do what we do.” All are welcome and there is no charge to attend.
In collaboration with Temple Beth-El: Leaving Home, with Prof. Andrew Bush, Jewish Studies Program at Vassar College.
Thursday evenings, November 14, 21 & December 5 at 7:00.
