WORSHIP SCHEDULE

Adult Education – Courses and Lectures

People of the Book – American Jewish Authors Book Group

Free, Monthly Tuesday evening meetings at the Temple, 7:00 – 9:00pm Oct 17; Nov 14; Dec 19; Jan 16; Feb 20; Mar 27; Apr 24 and May 15

 

What better time to start a book group than the start of the new Jewish Year?

Our focus will be on the fiction—novels and short stories—of selected Jewish American writers of the 20th and 21st centuries as they explore the tension between assimilation and tradition and the poles of alienation and belonging. Every work will also be rich in character, story, and the exploration of the human condition—the stuff that makes for great and enjoyable fiction. Be prepared for familiar and less well known works, humor and sadness, seriousness and whimsy, and all the passions of life.

Join Debby Bloch—author, professor, and avid lifelong reader—and Rabbi Jonathan Singer for the first meeting on October 17, 2017. We will get organized, begin to explore what we mean by “Jewish American” writers, and become enthused (we hope) about the works we will read and discuss this year.

What questions keep you up at night?

What answers bring you comfort?
What more are you curious to know?

At Emanu-El, we are an active community of lifelong Jewish learners – in the endless pursuit of spiritual growth and exploration. As Jews, we are compelled to question and debate. These conversations energize us as we gain new perspectives and challenge our own long-held beliefs. Our shared desire for knowledge and for community enriches us as individuals and bonds us as a congregation.

Emanu-El thrives when we are learning together. We hope that you will find time on your calendar and in your mind to join us on a thought-provoking and powerful Jewish journey.

To inquire about adult education, please contact Ariana Estoque, director of adolescent and adult education, at (415) 751-2541 x307 or aestoque@emanuelsf.org
