A Special Dor Hadash Program,  Sunday morning, December 10, 2017 at 10am

 This program will celebrate the publication by author Sydelle Pearl of her new book, Wordwings. The story is told in the words of 12-year old Rivke who kept a diary of events and people hiding in the Warsaw Ghetto. Their stories, poems and pictures were hidden in a milk can and buried. To tell this story required in-depth research about the Underground Archive that survived World War II.

In addition to Sydelle’s talk, Ruth Drescher and Sarah Angrist will share their family stories about World War II and the tragic destruction of European Jewry by the Nazis.

Copies of Wordwings will be available for purchase at the cost of $20 each. A book signing will follow the presentation.

Come and bring your friends and family. Refreshments will be served. The session will be held in at Tree of Life-Or L’Simcha 5898 Wilkins Avenue at Shady.

RSVP IS REQUIRED to: admin@dorhadash.net or Phone: 412-422-5158

Dor Hadash Biblical Hebrew Group

The Dor Hadash Biblical Hebrew Group, which has been on hiatus for 9 months, is starting up again.  And we are looking for new participants.   Four Dor Hadash members–among them 3 Dor Hadash Presidents past and present—have been learning Biblical Hebrew by translating a section of that week’s portion and discussing it.  Vocabulary, grammar, and syntax are explained, and we fly into discussions of the Bible at the drop of a hat.

It is an informal, fun group, which meets once per week for 90 minutes.  If you can read Hebrew without understanding anything, maybe it is time to learn the basics of Hebrew.   If you are interested, contact Hal Grinberg at halgrin1111@gmail.com
