Rabbi Barry Silver
Guest Rabbi Zvi Kahn
Tuesday, January 18 at 7:00 pm ET
A Virtual Zoom Weekly Program
Join with Rabbi Barry Silver and our long-time friend and special guest Rabbi Zvi Kahn, a modern orthodox educator and rabbi. Rabbi Kahn was a frequent guest to our L'Dor Va-Dor weekly Torah Study programs for several months. He provides an Orhtodox view on the Torah and always welcomed Rabbi Barry's insight as well.

Come and learn more about the upcoming Shabbat's Torah parsha, Exodus Yitro. This parsha highlights Moses' father-in-law Yitro (or Jethro) and the words of wisdom he imparts to his son-in-law.
 
Enjoy the Torah from two unique and different viewpoints and learn more with us! Let's welcome back Rabbi Kahn and show him some great L'Dor Va-Dor participation! ALL are welcomed to partake and participate in this special evening, dedicated to learning more from our Torah!

Thursday, FEBRUARY 17 at 7:30 pm ET
Guests $5; Registration is required
  
The true story of the wealthy Baghdadi Jewish families in Shanghai. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author Jonathan Kaufman’s The Last Kings of Shanghai chronicles the fascinating tale of two rival Sephardic Jewish families from Baghdad, the Sassoons and Kadoories, that dominated the business, political, and cultural scene in Asia for the first half of the twentieth century. The book highlights what is perhaps the families’ most impressive achievement: the funding and saving of more than 18,000 Jews during the Holocaust. Kaufman’s deeply researched account of these two families goes in depth on how they were able to establish a wide network of connections that ultimately reached China, resulting huge investments and deals that turned the small trading companies into global giants.

We are very excited to continue to bring you new and special programs AND we hope that you will take advantage of some! Our Zoom Shabbat celebrations have been exciting and invigorating! If Zoom is not your "thing" or you are not able to connect, you can watch via our YouTube channel or our Facebook page (see the links at the top of this email and also at the bottom).

We look forward to hearing from you if you may have suggestions, ideas, or comments about past programming and/or future events or programs we might be able to provide. We want to continue our relationships with you and need your support. We ask each of you to share L'Dor Va-Dor with one other person (or more) and invite this person to join you in one of our programs or services. In this way, you can help spread the "good word" about L'Dor Va-Dor to others!

We are continuing to canvas the area in search of a location to hold in-person services and programs, or to share space with another organization, institution, business, or community. If you should know of something or have ideas about a location or space, please contact us at the congregation phone 561-968-0688 or email to INFO@LDORVADOR.org. We thank you in advance for any and all input!

We wish you Chag Sameach - Happy Holiday - Happy Tu B'Shevat, the New Year of the Trees! We also remember the amazing and vital work done by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on this, the eve of his birthday remembrance day.

Please let us know if we can assist you in any way; we would love to hear from you. We wish all a beautiful week. Take the time to look around, at the trees, the flowers, the plants, and the true beauty of our surroundings and enjoy what we have. Let's not take this for granted, but stand up for our planet Earth at every opportunity offered! Sending you our best from L'Dor Va-Dor!

With Shalom,
Sharon Leibovitz
