    Children of the Inquisition: Virtual film screening on October 25 & 26, Guest speakers on October 27, 28, & 29
    Sunday, Oct 25th 12:00a to 11:59p
    Children of the Inquisition is a re-examination of history and identity in a 2-hour documentary film, immersive website, and educational outreach project that unearths 500 years of hidden history. The film looks at what happened to the families forced to convert to Catholicism or flee during the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions through the eyes of their contemporary descendants, many of whom are just discovering their often nuanced Jewish roots. Our storytellers uncover the connections between their family’s journeys and this buried history. The discoveries of these flights to safety over the past 500 years give a new perspective to the world events we face today. Children of the Inquisition is more than just a film. It’s an opportunity to better understand our complex world and identities.

    Dismantling Racism: A Jewish Lens
    Thursday, Oct 29th 7:00p to 8:30p
    In this time of national reckoning over racism in the U.S., many of us are drawn to engage in deep personal learning and introspection to better understand the workings of racism in American society and our role in dismantling it. In this six-session series, we will take a deep look at understandings of race and racism, using a variety of readings, recordings, interpersonal exercises, and open-hearted conversation. We will explore emerging understandings of racism, implicit bias and unconscious participation in racist systems, and the question of white privilege for white Jews. Finally, we will consider how Jewish teachings about teshuvah apply to our own anti-racist work as individuals, and about collective atonement for racism throughout American history. Collaboratively designed and taught by Rabbi Amy Eilberg and Flaurie S. Imberman, the weekly sessions will meet on October 15, 22, 29, November 5, 12, and 19 from 7-8:30 PM. The class is open to a maximum of 20-25 people who are committed to attending all sessions (if at all possible) For more information, please email Amy and/or Flaurie at rebamy@eilberg.com or flauriei@gmail.com To register, please visit: bit.ly/dismantlingracism2020

    On The Run in Nazi Berlin Book Discussion with Bev Lewyn, November 9th at 7pm
    Monday, Nov 9th 7:00p to 8:00p
    The book is about my late Father-in-law’s experience surviving the Holocaust in Berlin. He was never in a concentration camp nor was he hidden in one place like Anne Frank. He was just a teenager but he did crazy things to survive. He lived in bombed out buildings, he posed as SS (uniform, gun and all). The story is also about us rediscovering his past, including that he had a wife that he forgot. For more information, please contact Morah Derech Sarah Miller at sarahmiller@kolemeth.org, Director of Spiritual and Lifelong Learning.

A theatrical backdrop sets the stage in our very own Playhouse! Very interactive and silly! We love to have the kids feel like they are a part of the show as much as the virtual aspect provides!
