Jews and Slavery: A Complicated Legacy
Friday, June 18, 7:30pm
“Juneteenth” has recently grown in awareness as a celebration of the end of American slavery. What is the true legacy of Jews and slavery, from Biblical concept to the realities in Europe, the Middle East and Americas? We may not always be pleased by what we find, but truth has its own dignity and can motivate us to face consequences.

Monday, June 21, 1:30pm
All the women of Kol Hadash are invited to participate. This is an open group and we welcome you.

in-person Canasta Refresher

Monday, June 28, 1:30pm
Now that we’ve been vaccinated and summer is here — we are starting enjoying IN PERSON again. Our first in-person activity of the summer is a Canasta Refresher. Whether you are a seasoned player, a used-to-be player or wanna-be player, join us. Not a card player? Come and kibbitz.

We also need your ideas for future in-person get-togethers. It would be lovely if we could get together once a month in person during summer and early fall.  Bring your ideas to one of the Monday sessions or call or email Joyce Hirsch 847-446-6949, or
