SHAVUOT

Join us as we explore outstanding women in the Bible, in history, and in our own families.

We will begin with a short study of Naomi and Ruth, the important characters in the Biblical story we read on Shavuot.

At 9:15 we will watch a film The Redeeming Angel. Esther Frank-Matz, an 87-year-old Holocaust survivor from Israel, travels with her three sons to the Netherlands, where she was born, and lived during her childhood and the period of the Holocaust. The Redeeming Angel is a story about a fascinating journey of closing circles in Esther's early life stations - childhood in Zandvoort, the Amsterdam ghetto and the hiding place in the fishermen's village Edam. We will watch the film together, and then discuss with the producer, Gil Matz.

At 10:30, we will hear from British scholar Gillian Perry, author of The Legacy of Anne Frank, which explores the various legacies of Anne Frank’s influence and shares new insights into the real Anne Frank. At about 11:30, we conclude the traditional late night study and end at midnight with cheesecake at your own home. 

Sorry, Registration has ended.
