Hazak 55+ Welcomes Judie Rice

What do you know about your ancestors?

This month's Hazak program will be presented by Judie Rice from the Jewish Genealogy Society and should be a fascinating discussion. Judie's focus is on Jewish surnames and dispelling the myth that our ancestor immigrants' surnames were changed at Ellis Island. She speaks with humor, and emphasizes and encourages people to record their family histories and stories.

Kol Nidre Class

As we begin thinking about the High Holy Days, explore one of the most well known but possibly least understood prayers in our tradition, Kol Nidre. What does it actually say? Does it annul vows for the previous year or for the year to come?  Be a part of a lively discussion with Rabbi Shelby and Rabbi Kalev.
