ADULT EDUCATION with Rabbi Eva Goldfinger @ Borochov Cultural Centre
Dec 20 @ 7:00 PM
Rabbi Eva Goldfinger’s Winter Adult Education Series presents:
“MeToo vs. NotMe: Relevance of Jewish Teachings Through the Ages for Jews Today”

First session – Dec. 20: MeToo vs. NotMe: Relevance Today of Biblical Do’s and Don’ts

Jewish biblical and rabbinic texts, stories, poetry, and laws from ancient to contemporary times are filled with do’s and don’ts for appropriate and ethical Jewish behaviours.  Join Rabbi Eva as we study and examine Jewish texts through the ages that purport to tell us what is and isn’t ethical and how we should and should not behave in our everyday lives. Join the discussion on which rules of behaviour are ethical or unethical, and meaningful or irrelevant for us today. Then let’s create and share with others our Mini-Humanist-Talmud on what is and isn’t ethical ‘For Me/For Us’ today. Feel free to suggest specific issues you would like to discuss in our final session.

Four Thursdays, starting at 7:00 pm sharp and ending about 9:30 pm:
Dec. 20:  MeToo vs. NotMe: Relevance Today of Biblical Do’s and Don’ts
Jan. 24:  MeToo vs. NotMe: Pros and Cons of Rabbinical Teachings and Laws
Feb. 21:   MeToo vs. NotMe: Meaningfulness of Modern Interpretation of Jewish Laws and Customs
Mar 21:   Contemporary Ethical Revolutions: Which are MeToos and Which are NotMes?

What kind of Jewishness has relevance and meaning for you?  Come and study with Rabbi Eva and have a say in the present and future of Judaism.  For you, what is and is not worth doing and passing on to future generations?  Come and dissect Jewish texts and writings from ancient times to today and join our open discussions on why the teaching is or is not relevant or ethical for us.  Your voice counts. Come and be heard!!!

Non-members welcome: $60 for the series or $20 per session

(Book Now for 2019)”Old Stock ~ A Refugee Love Story” THEATRE EVENT @ Tarragon Theatre, Mainspace
May 24 @ 8:00 PM
Booking now for 2019

Join us for a remarkable theatre experience!

OLD STOCK: A REFUGEE LOVE STORY

A 2b theatre company production
by Governor General Award-winning writer Hannah Moscovitch
Songs by Ben Caplan & Christian Barry Directed by Christian Barry

** Followed by a private Q&A and post-show party **

Halifax, 1908: two Romanian Jews stand in line at Pier 21 in Halifax, would-be immigrants to an unknown country. Chaim’s entire family was murdered in a pogrom; Chaya lost her husband to fever and starvation. But the New World is giving them a second chance, and they embrace it to the fullest. This humorously dark folk tale narrated by The Wanderer — part showman, part rabbi — is a genre-bending rock/klezmer concert/theatre hybrid starring Klezmer-folk sensation Ben Caplan and is inspired by the real-life love story of Moscovitch’s great-grandparents.

“A hugely engaging experience” – The Guardian’s Top Recommended Shows (Edinburgh 2017 Fringe Festival)
★★★★★ “Emotionally engaging, visually stunning and at 80 minutes leaves us still wanting more.” – Musical Theatre Review
