- November 17, 11:45 am – 12:45 pm “Secular Holidays in Jewish Law” with Rabbi Cary Friedman. Sometimes we forget that we live in Galut / Exile, but the holiday seasons remind us dramatically that we are strangers in a foreign land. Can a Jew go “trick or treat”-ing on Halloween, eat turkey on Thanksgiving, attend holiday parties in December, sing Auld Lang Syne on New Year’s Eve, or send Valentines cards? We will consider a number of secular holidays in the light of Jewish law.
- December 22, 11:45 am – 12:45 pm “Eric Hoffer and the Jews” with Rabbi Cary Friedman. We will consider the life and thought of the “Longshoreman Philosopher” and study a sample of his prescient and profound insights into the Jewish people and the unique role they play on the world stage.
