    Adult Education: The Islamic Empire

    Tuesday, Jan 19th 7:30p to 8:30p
    The Jewish experience under Islam defines the Middle Ages. As a tolerated minority, Jews were generally more successful and comfortable than under Christendom. The Islamic Empire enabled Jewish trade, religious uniformity (and schism), and cultural and intellectual exchange. How far Jewish-Muslim relations were then from where they are now!

    SciFi Book Club: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North

    Thursday, Jan 21st 7:30p to 8:30p
    Our book selection this month is The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North. Wildly original, funny and moving, The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is an extraordinary story of a life lived again and again from World Fantasy Award-winning author Claire North. Harry August is on his deathbed. Again. No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before. Nothing ever changes. Until now. As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. "I nearly missed you, Doctor August," she says. "I need to send a message." This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow. All are welcome to join us!

    Music Shabbat Service: Positive Progress: Evolution or Revolution? (Yahrtzeit Service)

    Friday, Jan 22nd 7:30p to 9:00p
    What is the best way to change something that needs changing – radical revolution or gradual evolution? Religion, politics, institutional culture, social injustice all provide evidence on both sides of the debate. To decide which is more effective, we must push ourselves to stretch past our own temperament and comfort levels. This shabbat following Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we will explore this key question.
