CAL_Bring in the Light Dinner
With special guest Rabbi Rachel Sabath Beit-Halachmi, Ph.D., respected scholar, dear classmate of Rabbi Sisenwine & one of Rabbi Saphire’s favorite teachers!
Celebrate the joy and light of Shabbat. Join us for singing, learning, and a wonderful Shabbat table experience. Open to all, reservations are required.
Following dinner, Rabbi Sabath will lead the discussion “New Principles of Jewish Peoplehood: What are they and How Might they Unite Us?”
Rabbi Sabath will speak about the new shared principles-based thinking on Jewish Peoplehood and the groundbreaking initiative “Our Common Destiny” launched recently by the Genesis Philanthropy Group along with partners at the State of Israel and the Office of the President of Israel. Rabbi Sabath serves as one of the scholars directing the content of the international initiative.  Our Common Destiny, seeks not only to bridge the rift between Jews in the Jewish State and Jews of the Jewish world, but to find a path forward out of the labyrinth of divisions that threatens to sap our energies, distract us from key issues of our future and set us against one another.
