“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.”
            ~ Albert Einstein

Lifelong learning is a core value of Judaism. We study to learn “how” and we study to learn “why.”

What are the most popular songs sung at a Passover Seder? You probably never thought that these songs, which might even seem a bit juvenile and simple in content and melody, have deep unex-pected messages. This month’s class looks at some different midrashic, histori-cal, political, musical, and spiritual interpre-tations of some classic Seder songs such as Dayeinu, Chad Gadya, and Echad Mi Yodea (Who knows One?). And, of course, we will sing the melodies that are familiar (bring your favorites to sing), and hear a few that aren’t. These various interpreta-tions of deceivingly simple song texts may give added meaning to your entire Passover experience.

Jewish Book Club open to members and non-members. We will be discussing the novel All the Rivers by Dorit Rabinyan. Participants need to read the book in advance. The book is relevant today. It's a story that brings the Israel/Palestine issue to a much more personal level. At this meeting, we will decide on the book to read at our next Jewish Book Club. Start thinking about books you think the book club should read. Donation of $5. . Snacks, water, iced tea and coffee will be available.

May – Movie Night – exact date and movie to be determined
