SOCIAL ACTION COMMITTEE

If you read your Kol carefully you saw that there is a committee meeting next Sunday morning (November 19).  This is the first of regular monthly meetings that will take place (mostly) on the third Sunday of each month.

Since we have not had regular meetings recently, and since, as the Kol article made clear, we have ambitious plans for the year, I want to invite anyone interested to attend this meeting and to learn more about opportunities to get involved.

Please come and join the discussion on November 19, Rabbi’s Study, 10 a.m.  I will try to keep this and future meetings to one hour.

Kerry Ban, chair

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
