Real Teen Theater

Post bar/bat mitzvah Jewish teens and allies are welcome to join our real teen theater project, Sunday evenings 5-7. We are currently practicing theater and improv exercises and reading sections of plays to choose a project for our first performance. Dinner is included. Schedule is intermittent so check here for dates or contact [email protected] to confirm.

Supported by a grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

A Hillula for Leonard Cohen

At first Friday Shabbat Dinner this month we will celebrate & study the poetry & philosophy of Leonard Cohen, as told through his songs. Participants will learn and sing some of Cohen's music, & Rabbi Andrea will lead a table talk on the kabbalistic & philosophical underpinnings of his songwriting.

If you would like to help set up, come at 5:30. Dinner & blessings at 6 PM, followed by songs.

Temple Israel will provide a Simple Supper, please bring sides, drinks, or desserts to share if you are able to.

Book Discussion: "Anti-Semitism: Why is it Everyone's Concern" with Amy Leos-Urbel

Amy Leos-Urbel will lead this time to share our insights about reading the booklet: Anti-Semitism: Why is it Everyone's Concern?

This booklet is about how anti-Semitism is used to divide Jews from other groups -- and from each other -- and how to educate non-Jews to be our allies. It was written by Cherie Brown and Amy Leos-Urbel and published by Jews and Allies United to End Anti-Semitism.

Real Teen Theater Launch Meeting

After viewing the Silverthorn Theater production of Ann Frank, teens and their families are invited to meet for the launch meeting of Real Teen Theater of Temple Israel. We'll start at 4:30 at H&R and then continue, if we wish, to get some pizza together.

We'll discuss the goals for the project this year and set the best dates and meeting times for the teens who wish to participate. The leadership teen includes Rabbi Andrea, Christine Benevenuto, Susan Hollins and other friends of Temple Israel. Jews and allies are welcome to come and hear more.

Yizkor of Sukkot

Our harvest season closes with Sukkot, and this last day, called Shmini Atzeret, is also a day of remembering our deceased loved ones. Please come if you can help make the minyan for the Yizkor service, 10-12. Followed by a light kiddush.
