JOIN US FOR AN INTIMATE EVENING OF COMEDY AND COCKTAILS!

In conjunction with the Levine Speaker Series. Doors open at 8:30PM. Enjoy an intimate evening of desserts, drinks and a comedic view of a serious topic!

Teen/Parent program Sunday, April 16th 10AM at Temple Sinai:
“Israel Behind the Headlines”
Designed for teen and their parents. How can we expect teens to advocate for Israel and discuss the conflict without a foundation of knowledge, pride, and love? We will explore the Jewish people’s special connection to Israel and discuss how Israel is both similar to and different from America in women’s and LGBT rights, gun control, and other hot-button issues. Teens may be surprised to learn that while Israel isn’t perfect, in many areas it’s one of the most progressive countries in the world.
Free and open to the community. Sponsorships available to defray costs.
On March 27th, we joined Stand Up To Jewish Hate, a new campaign to educate all Americans about the rise of antisemitism and mobilize people outside the Jewish community to help us address growing hate and intolerance.
We are asking everyone to post and share #? on social media, using the blue square emoji on your phone, as a simple but powerful unifying symbol of solidarity.
Here are a few actions you can take to #StandUptoJewishHate and join this national movement:
