iEngage: The Engaging Israel Project
Congregation Emanu-El in collaboration with the Contemporary Jewish Museum and the Jewish Community Relations Council Introduces iEngage
The goal of the iEngage Project is to respond to growing feelings of disenchantment and disinterest toward Israel among an ever-increasing number of Jews worldwide by creating a new narrative regarding the significance of Israel for Jewish life. Join the Emanu-El Clergy in text study and discussion around ideas for this new narrative.

Stories in Song: The Music of the Diaspora
With Cantor Roslyn Barak
Throughout the centuries after the dispersion, the Jews have given expression to their deepest hopes, fears, dreams and emotions through poetry and song. Each community of Jews around the world had their own unique melodies and stories. We will visit these communities and listen to their tales of love, oppression, joy, humor, and faith. Registration is required.
