MA’ARIV & TIKKUN LEIL SHAVUOT (BEIT T’FILLAH)

Tuesday, June 11, 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Shavuot a time of Revelation
On Shavuot our ancestors stood at Sinai to receive the Torah. Each one felt that the revelation was directed solely at them. Each one accepted Torah into their lives. Traditionally we too stood at Sinai and were there to receive the Torah. We too have the decision to accept Torah and make it real in the world.  Join us on Erev Shavuot as Rabbis Kunin and Roller investigate the meaning of revelation for the past, present and future

BOOK DISCUSSION (BEIT MIDRASH)

The Little Liar, by Mitch Albom
Saturday, July 13, 12:45 p.m. – 2:15 p.m.
Eleven-year-old Nico Krispis has never told a lie. Nico’s innocence and goodness is used against his tightly knit community when a German officer barters Nico’s reputation for honesty into a promise to save his loved ones. When Nico realizes the consequences of the betrayal, he can never tell the truth again. He will spend the rest of this life changing names, changing locations and identities, desperate to find a way to forgiveness—for himself and from the people he loves most. Narrated by the voice of Truth itself, The Little Liar is a timeless story about the power of love to ultimately redeem us, no matter how deeply we blame ourselves for our mistakes. The discussion will be led by Sheryl Rattner.
