    Speaker: “Making Peace with the Past: Conflict, Connection, and Controversy”

    Shabbat, Feb 25th (All day)
    How to let go yet remember, assign blame without guilt, repair what was broken, stop recycling the past, and create a future that works for all. Søren Kierkegaard reputedly said, “Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” Conflict in any human relationship is inevitable; resolving conflict is not. It’s all about communication. Or is it? Miriam Zimmerman will share with us on her experience dealing with these difficult topics.

    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.
