7:00 pm Dessert Reception (In-Person Only)
7:30 pm Conversation with Sarah Hurwitz (In-Person and Virtual)
8:40 pm Bring Your Book and Have It Signed (In-Person Only)
For those who are participating virtually, please note the new start time for the program.
This past year, our congregation has been reading, Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life — in Judaism (After Finally Choosing to Look There). You may have read the book, listened to the Divrei Torah, engaged in a book circle, or even participated in Sunday morning conversations with Rabbi London. Or perhaps you have been reflecting on your own relationship to Judaism, observing Shabbat, developing a spiritual practice, and being a great person. Now’s the time to meet the author, hear her insights, and be inspired to continue the journey. Even if you have not participated yet, Sarah’s visit is sure to spark your interest.
