Join us in reading “Great Jewish Thinkers:  Their lives and work by Naomi Pasachoff 


Tuesdays 7;00-8:15 PM Jan. 12 and 26; Feb. 9 and 23, March 9 and 23, and April 13 and 27.  

Rabbi Helaine quotes Rabbi William Cutter,  “The development of Jewish thought is in many ways similar to the evolution we see in the world of music.  Music is always presenting us with new rhythms and harmonies.  But it is also deeply rooted in the achievements of past musicians.  This book, “Great Jewish Thinkers celebrates Judaism’s ability to adapt and grow in response to new surroundings without giving up its precious history and legacy.  The book honors the Jewish belief that the past is a model for the present.”  

We welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about Judaism through this reading, and who is looking for lively conversation and maybe some new friends!  All are welcome.  You do not need to be a congregant to participate.

You can find the book on Amazon, or locally can be ordered at Split Rock Books.
