SISTERHOOD TORAH SHABBAT 5774
March 28 -29, 2014
Guest Scholar: Dr. Richard Freund
This year’s Torah Study Shabbat speaker will be Dr. Richard Freund, Director of the Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies and Greenberg Professor of Jewish History at the University of Hartford. Also a renowned archaeologist, Dr. Freund will speak on a variety of subjects during his time with us. Friday evening, following the service and dinner, at the Saul M. and Rebecca B. Silverstein Memorial Lecture, his topic will be: “Was There an Exodus from Egypt: What Archaeology Really Says.” During Shabbat morning service, he will give the D’var Torah, and that afternoon, at 1:15, he will lead a study session entitled, “Latin American Jews and Judaism”, the Rabbi Jeshaia and Hilde Schnitzer Memorial Lecture. The talks are open to all, but paid reservations are required for Friday night dinner. The Shabbat luncheon is sponsored by the BSI Sisterhood and is free, but reservations would be appreciated.
On Saturday night, Concordia Lutheran Church will join us for an interfaith program entitled, “Finding the Lost City of Bethsaida: The City of King David and Jesus on the Northeast Shore of the Sea of Galilee.” There is a small charge for this program. You may register in advance or pay at the door.
