Special Erev Shabbat
Friday, October 25, 2019 @6:15pm-7:30pm
Doors open at 5:45pm
At this Erev Shabbat, we will commemorate the 11 people who were lost on October 27, 2018 at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.
As we observe this day and honor those no longer with us, we are fortunate to have guest speaker from Israel, Rabbi Noga Brenner Samia. Rabbi Samia is the deputy director of BINA, a progressive yeshiva that stresses learning, social action, and community building. She will speak on Judaism and democracy 24 years after the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
BINA (“wisdom” in Hebrew, and an acronym for “Home for the Creation of our Nation’s Soul), is a non-Orthodox, pluralistic Yeshiva in Tel Aviv. Originally established in the wake of PM Rabin’s murder, it responded to an immediate need by secular Israelis’ to express their grief, and a longer term goal of studying Jewish texts in order to build a modern, relevant connection to Jewish values.
Please join us to share strength and love.
