Feast your palates on a delicious spread, courtesy of the Culinary Crew, and feast your ears on Charles’ playing, which Classical Guitar Magazine (UK) has called “truly monumental” as well as “engaging and rhapsodic.”
Join us for an eye-opening and engaging presentation on Jewish Funeral Traditions, which covers our traditions regarding death and dying, funerals, the treatment of the body, burial, mourning and annual remembrances. This talk illuminates the differences and similarities of these traditions, including information about Jews and cremation. Scenes from My Mexican Shivah, Noral’s Will, Diamonds are Forever, and This is Where I Leave You, will be shown to illustrate Jewish funeral and mourning customs. Gail Rubin is a member of the Chevra Kaddisha, a society of volunteers who wash and dress the bodies of Jews for burial and also serves on the cemetery committee for her synagogue. Gail is a TV/radio host and author of A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die. No charge.
Cultural diversity should mean being open to learn about the other ethnic cultural expressions, often through the cultural arts – music, food, dance, theatre and, oh yes, the visual arts/craft. What do other groups know about Jewish cultural expressions outside of bagels and matzah ball soup? Join nationally noted Judaic artist/graphic designer, Avy Ashery –creator of the Beth Ami logo - will discuss Cultural Diversity & Our Own Jewish Cultural Expressions and will also bring a few samples of his own Judaic art. No charge.
