A Monthly Zoom Virtual Program
TOPIC: Is there Apartheid in the Afterlife?

Rabbi Barry Silver
Guest Pastor Fritz Aufdencamp

Join in for this exciting debate and discussion with Rabbi Barry Silver and his guest Pastor Fritz Aufdencamp about the topic of Apartheid in the Afterlife and the possible source for anti-Semitism. Pastor Aufdencamp believes differently than most Christian clergy and was ostracized because of these beliefs.

All are welcome to participate, share your views and opinions. All will be heard, as long as all agree to agree and disagree agreeably. This is a monthly series that was created to honor our founding rabbi, Rabbi Sam Silver, and is now slated for the third Monday of each month.

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.

As you know, L'Dor Va-Dor has been looking for a place to call home. If you know of a place, empty office space, your community rents to outside sources, an organization willing to share space, or any other suggestions or ideas, PLEASE LET US KNOW! You can contact us at the congregation phone 561-968-0688 or email to We thank you in advance for your ideas!
We had our inaugural new program KUMZITS this afternoon and the participants are raving! This was a fun sing-along with music we may know and love and some new ones as well! Rabbi, Carol, and Andy created a great lineup of music and words and the result was an inspiring and fun hour! Of course, this program would be better live and together, but this Zoom program was equally fun! We will let you know the next program date and you won't want to miss this!

Please join us for our special send-off to our beautiful Cantorial Soloist Rose Lopater on this Friday evening, January 28th at 7 pm within our Shabbat Celebration on Zoom. Rose has given us wonderful music for the past 15 years of our 25 years of existence and deserves our love and support on this special Shabbat. So be sure to mark your calendars and attend!

If there may be anything that L'Dor Va-Dor can do for you, please just ask by calling or emailing us. We will be there for you when and if you need us!

Wishes for a grand week ahead that we hope will include L'Dor Va-Dor within! Be well, stay safe, and fill your days with love, laughter, peaceful and positive thoughts.
With Shalom,
Sharon Leibovitz
