Shir Chadash Events & Announcements
The Rabbis of West Esplanade Present:
Election-year politics - Jewish-style!
Should gun-shop owners be obligated to pay for the damage caused by weapons they sold? What makes someone fit to serve as a judge? In what circumstances is abortion appropriate? These are just a few of the many contentious issues floating around during this election season.
 
In this short series, three of your West Esplanade rabbis will explore the Jewish approaches to these hotly debated topics.


We will be leaving contemporary political debates and political parties at the door, exploring the values that motivate each side of the issue, and how those values are expressed and prioritized in our tradition. For each class, we will get a case to explore, and will break up into small groups to explore how our tradition might respond to it. Please come with an open mind - not to have your opinions changed, but better to appreciate the perspective of your neighbor with whom you might disagree.


Session 2: Tuesday, October 20th at 7:30 pm: What makes someone fit to serve as a judge?


Session 3: Tuesday, October 27th at 7:30 pm: In what circumstances is abortion appropriate?
Machzor Returns

Now that the High Holydays have come to an end, if you were lent a prayer book (Machzor), please return it to the synagogue at your earliest convenience. If you are unable to make it to the shul, please contact the front office to arrange alternative plans.
Calling All Etrogs!

Are you done with your etrog?
If so, please bring it to the synagogue so we can give it to people who will transform it into tasty treats!
