    Must-Know Purim Hebrew Terms with Rhonna Rogol

    Wednesday, Mar 1st 6:45p to 7:45p
    During this session we will explore the meanings and derivations of some of the most commonly used Purim holiday words and phrases. Purim will be much more fun (and we are commanded to be happy, after all!) when we know the meanings and derivations of the key vocabulary for this raucous holiday. Come find out if Hamantaschen really means Haman’s ears (you might be surprised and even a little shocked) and where the word Gragger originated from. What’s a Megillah, what’s cool about Esther’s name and do we send Mishloach Manot or Shalach Manos, or both? Maybe most important, what does Purim itself mean? Come hear the whole shpiel and share your own thoughts and questions. No prior knowledge of Hebrew or even the alphabet is necessary. The only pre-requisites are a love of learning new things and an inquisitive mind.

    CHALLENGING CONFLICT THROUGH UNDERSTANDING - Guest speaker: Gary Friedman

    Shabbat, Mar 4th 1:30p to 4:30p
    Most of us are very concerned about polarization in our family, shul and the wider world. But how do we do something about it, and why should we even try? On March 4th, come hear and learn from Gary Friedman, the world-renowned “godfather of mediation.” During Services, Gary will talk about his fascinating personal journey from using understanding to resolve conflict between others to realizing how hard it is to practice true understanding – a journey that was featured in Amanda Ripley’s excellent book, High Conflict. After Kiddush, participate in an interactive session where Gary will challenge us to think about why – during polarized times – we might want (or not want) to engage with people who think and behave differently than we do. Gary will also share tips and tricks for transforming conflict into something positive.
