Up next: CESJDS Upper School teacher, Rachel Bergstein, takes a look at material culture through HiHo images from the past and explores how the things we own today might be seen by the historians of the future.

In memory of her son, Ronen, Cantor Hinda Labovitz has composed a moving setting for Un’taneh Tokef, which she will premiere on September 7. Join her for this moving session where she will address the question: How do we respond to troubling theology in troubling times?

And even though she wasn’t, it doesn’t mean that we can’t raise a glass in her honor. Covenant Wines founder Jeff Morgan is offering a Zoom wine tasting event for OKCers on September 10, and you can order the tasting menu now at a discount.
