Learn with Rabbi Na'ama Dafni-Kellen
Tuesday, December 5, 7:15 pm

Learn with Rabbi Na'ama Dafni-Kellen from Congregation Ohel Avraham in Haifa. Rabbi Dafni-Kellen, who is visiting for the URJ Biennial, will be teaching: "By the waters of Babylon, the Charles and the Mediterranean," exploring another time in our people's history when there were two strong, vibrant and different centers of Jewish life in the world.

Building on Rabbi Sisenwine's Yom Kippur sermon on the shared peoplehood of Israeli and American Reform Jews, this session will provide a taste of the flavor and themes we will experience in our "Partners in Reform" study, travel, and relationship building trip to Israel in July, co-led by Rabbi Sisenwine and Alison Kur, in partnership with Ohel Avraham's Rabbis Na'ama Dafni-Kellen and Gabby Dagan and our friends in Haifa.  Brief info session following study.
