Friday, October 20, 5:45pm

This month’s discussion: “Tradition! Tradition!” with Pearl Ann Schwartz

All of us celebrate the same holidays.  But everyone celebrates differently.

Do we have traditions or foods that are special?  Do we have cherished memories of holidays past that become part of our celebration?  If so, join our discussion and share your traditions, recipes, and memories with us.  When you do, we get to know you better and take another step forward in building our strong temple community.

Pearl Ann Schwartz has been a congregant at TBA for more than sixty years.  Pearl Ann’s family has had baby namings, a bar mitzvah, confirmation services, a wedding, and a funeral at TBA.  Pearl Ann has been a Vice President, Officer, and Trustee on TBA’s Board of Trustees and has served as a “Filler-in-Where-Needed.”

Bring a bag supper to enjoy after Women’s Circle and before Shabbat Services.

The Adult Education and Israel Committees of Temple Beth Abraham present:

Rabbi Dr. Ron Kronish: Peaceful Relations Between Israelis and Palestinians

Join TBA’s Adult Education and Israel Committees for a discussion about peacemaking: the purview of national leaders and diplomats; and peacebuilders: ordinary citizens, who have the power to influence others to reduce the barriers of fear and resentment, and encourage dialogue and mutual understanding, in the hopes of securing lasting peace among Israelis and Palestinians.

Founding Director of the Interreligious Coordinating Council in Israel (ICCI), Ron Kronish is now an independent scholar, educator, speaker, and writer. He is the author of Profiles of People, which will be for sale at the event for $18.00 each (cash only, please).

TBA Books@Night

Wednesday, October 25, 7:00pm

Join us for a moderated discussion about books with Jewish themes.

This month’s selection: The Lost Shtetl by Max Gross

For decades, the tiny Jewish shtetl of Kreskol existed in happy isolation, virtually untouched and unchanged. Spared by the Holocaust and the Cold War, its residents enjoyed remarkable peace. But when a marriage dispute spins out of control, the whole town comes crashing into the twenty-first century.

Discussion moderated by a congregant.

$5.00 suggested donation per guest.

RSVP: (914) 631-1770 adulted@tba-ny.org
