Shretelech Nature Hike with Maggid David @ Green River

Maggid David Arfa will lead us on a mini-expedition in search of the kindly Shretelech, the Yiddish word for elves. We'll explore the natural world through the eyes of children, hear stories of the magical Shretelech, and build shelters for them. Along the way, we'll explore the colors and textures of nature and introduce Jewish blessings for the natural world. After the hike, we'll gather for healthy insect-themed snacks.

For preschool and young elementary aged kids and their families. Free and open to all.

Teen Movie Screening of "Accidental Courtesy"

Temple Israel's Teen Group will be screening the film "Accidental Courtesy." Summary: Daryl Davis is an accomplished musician who was played all over the world. He also has an unusual hobby, particularly for a middle aged black man. When not displaying his musical chops, Daryl likes to meet and befriend members of the Ku Klux Klan. When many of these people eventually leave the Klan with Daryl's support, Daryl keeps their robes and hoods; building his collection piece by piece, story by story, person by person, in hopes of one day opening a museum of the Klan.
