    Lunch and Learn With Rabbi Howard: "The Meaning of Faith After the Holocaust"

    Thursday, Nov 21st 12:00p to 1:00p
    In the 1960s and 70’s, rabbis and scholars began to confront the profound theological implications of the Holocaust. God’s benevolence, power, and authority were now in doubt, as Jews from every stream raised questions about the nature of our covenant. Some rabbis wondered aloud if God was dead. Others alleged that God was hidden and could not be found. Join Rabbi Howard for an exploration of how we have responded to the theological challenges of such an unprecedented tragedy. We will study the meaning of post-Holocaust faith, the evolution of our covenant, the ethics of our choices, and the impact of Israel on our belief systems. It promises to be a provocative and fascinating conversation. You bring lunch and we’ll provide the drinks and dessert.

Our Mission

We engage innovative principles to connect our students to their Jewish selves, to each other,
to our Temple Beth-El community and Am Yisrael
(the people of Israel) in a setting that is joyful, communal and accessible.

Our Belief

We believe in creating an environment where: our students are active participants, problem solvers and planners, our teachers are facilitators and guides who foster critical thinking, our community is an extension of the classroom.

B’nei Mitzvah & Beyond

B'nei Mitzvah represents a commitment to Jewish learning and living,.  Most of all, it represents a commitment to continued study and exploration.  Our program continues through high school with  many options both in and out of the classroom.
