All Who Do Not Return by Shulem Deen.
As a member of the Skverers, one of the most insular Hasidic sects in the US, he knows little about the outside world--only that it is to be shunned. His marriage at eighteen is arranged and several children soon follow. Deen's first transgression--turning on the radio--is small, but his curiosity leads him to the library, and later the Internet. Soon he begins a feverish inquiry into the tenets of his religious beliefs, until, several years later, his faith unravels entirely.
Book discussion will take place on Monday, October 12 at 4 PM on Zoom

A Jewish View of Voting
Vote Early and Vote Often: What do the Jewish texts tell us about the
importance of voting?

There are some passages in our vast, multi-millennial Jewish text tradition that speak explicitly about voting, and there are other sources that address the topic indirectly. Does Judaism say that it's a mitzvah to vote? We'll explore some of these texts to see how attitudes have evolved. This will also be an opportunity to familiarize or re-familiarize ourselves with the different text strands (Bible, Mishnah, Talmud, Midrash, Codes, Responsa, Kabbalah, Liturgy, Commentary...) in our collective Jewish library. Homework will be assigned and is due no later than November 3.

Presented by Temple Beth Shalom Adult Education
