Organic Tu B'Shevat Seder Sunday, February 1, 2015 - 11:00am - 12:00pm

Organic Tu B'Shevat Seder

Please join us in celebrating the New Year for the Trees! Tu B’Shevat is a time in Israel when the rains have fallen and the blossoms begin to appear on the almond trees and we pray for a healthy harvest. In contemporary life, Tu B’Shevat is thought of as a Jewish “Earth Day.” Tu B’Shevat is an opportunity for Jews to address global environmental concerns as a community. The holiday offers reflection on being responsible stewards of the earth through Jewish spiritual teachings. Join us for this meal of organic, traditional foods! RSVP  so that we have enough for all!

Yom HaShoah Speaker: Eva Kuper Sunday, April 19, 2015 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Yom HaShoah Speaker: Eva Kuper

Guest speaker Eva Kuper from Montreal is a child survivor from Warsaw with a
compelling story that has been made into a film. Born at the start of WW II in Warsaw Poland, Eva survived the war by a series of miraculous events involving luck, coincidence and the courage and faith of several individuals, both family members and virtual strangers. She emigrated to Canada with her family in 1949 where she grew up "practically Canadian" with the history of the Holocaust always there in the background.
