“The Jewish Deli” + Religious School Open House on Saturday 10/21

This Saturday, October 21, spend the morning at B’ShERT for two special events:

A conversation on The Jewish Deli, 9:45 am

Join Ben Nadler, the author and illustrator of The Jewish Deli: An Illustrated Guide to the Chosen Food for a conversation on “A delightful celebration of Jewish delicatessens in an accessible comics format, full of history and humor, and guaranteed to make you hungry.” Taylor & Co. Books will be on hand selling copies.

Religious School Open House, 9:45 am

While some folks are envisioning pastrami and rye, kids ages 5 to 12 are invited to try out our religious school. They’ll join a class of their age group to explore a classic Genesis story—Noah and the ark!

Our K-2 class will learn about kindness to animals and make a rainbow craft, while our 3rd-5th graders will explore a short midrash about Noah before they venture into the Jewish practice of baby namings. And our 6th-8th graders will study a modern interpretation of the Noah story in which we ask: What was Noah’s wife thinking(!) and how can we understand the flood better from her perspective?

Then, at 11 am, all are welcome to join our family-friendly Shabbat services in our historic sanctuary.

See you Saturday!
