ISRAEL THROUGH POETRY
7:00pm — 7:50pm
Rabbi Elliot Skiddell

From the days of the Zionist pioneers to today’s post or neo-Zionism, poets have given voice to the zeitgeist of Israel. Reading the poetry that reflects the different stages in Israel’s history will give us a deeper understanding of Israel today.


TITILLATING TEXTS OF THE TALMUD
8:10pm — 9:00pm
Rabbi Marc Gruber
We will read closely some quirky and off-beat texts of the Sages, such as the encounter of the rabbi and the prostitute (Mena
hot 44a)  and the      questions posed by Alexander the Macedonian to Jewish leaders
(Tamid 32b ff.).
