The topic for discussion will be “WHAT DOES JUDAISM SAY ABOUT LIFE AFTER DEATH?
During the Days of Awe we recited the Unetaneh Tokef prayer: Who shall live and who shall die.”  We cannot help but wonder what happens after we die.  Jewish texts reveal the thinking of our ancestors, who ask the same questions that we do.
We will review some of these pearls of wisdom from Jewish sages of every generation.
Join us in the Fountain Room at Bet Shalom or via Zoom. Contact avi.aharoni@betshalom.org for the Zoom link.

The discussion topic will be the following: “Does Judaism take the Summer Off?”  What does our tradition have to say about the Jewish calendar, the weather, and the destruction of the Temple, along with sudden unemployment of the priesthood on Tishah B’Av?  We will hear from a real priest, who also happens to be our Rabbi Emeritus!

Rabbi Cohen will lead a discussion on the following topic: “What the Torah and other Jewish texts tell us about RACISM and what to do about it?” We also ponder how another manifestation of the basic human instinct to hate – ANTISEMITISM – helps us as Jews to identify other victims of discrimination and abuse. These issues are particularly poignant, given recent local events.
