Come participate in an outstanding weekend of adult education opportunities with this year’s guest Scholar-in-Residence, Rabbi Gary Zola, Ph.D., Director, Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives. The weekend’s schedule is below.
Profiles in American Jewish Courage, Friday, December 6, 2013, 7:30pm
Please see the following message from Rabbi Kedar.......
This Tuesday I will be taking a ten hour road trip to Primrose Valley Farm in WI with Julie Rachman and Terri Argentar. It is a CSA farm owned and run by our members Jamie and David Baker. This farm is a special and magical place. There, on the farm, stood a great, old and exquisite Walnut Tree, that needed to be cut down. David has been drying it for sometime now and we, the road travelers, go on this pilgrimage of sorts to examine and discern the raw planks that will become the Ark in our new sanctuary. Follow our journey on Twitter @kkedar.
This weekend we welcome our Scholar-in-Residence, Dr. Gary Zola, an expert in American Jewish History. Weekend topics include Profiles in American Jewish Courage; Great Voices, Civil Rightsand American Reform Judaism; and American Jewry's Relationship with Abraham Lincoln. The weekend kicks off with Mizmor L'Shabbat featuring our outstanding Tefilah Band on Friday night.
When disaster strikes BJBE has shown its commitment to help with trips to New Orleans, LA; Joplin, MO; Oklahoma City, OK; and now Washington, IL. The Center for Social Justice is organizing a relief trip on Sunday, December 15.

We write to you today with an urgent plea for help. One of the members of our BJBE family, Dr. Gary Greenberg, is in dire need of a life-saving kidney transplant from a living donor. Without a transplant, Gary is facing kidney-failure within the next 3-6 months. Unfortunately, not one of Gary's immediate family members is a viable donor, which is why we are turning to you. It will take only one person who is both a match and a willing donor to save Gary’s life. You or someone you know could be that person. There are two things you can do to help:
BJBE records many of its services. View a live stream of Shabbat or Holidays when available. Go to www.bjbe.org/video.
