TBE Mussar Group

Expanding on the teachings of Morgenstern Series Scholar-In-Residence Alan Morinis, we will soon be starting a Mussar Study Group here at Temple Beth El. The group will use the curriculum called “Seeking Everyday Holiness,” developed by the Mussar Institute and the Union for Reform Judaism. If you are interested in participating in the TBE Mussar Group, please contact Margaret in the TBE office as soon as possible – we hope to start meeting by the end of January.

“Wisdom of our Elders”
Our speaker series, “Pirke Avoteinu” – ‘The Wisdom of Our Elders’ – continues to feature our community’s elders on selected Friday nights. These shorter services allow time for our Avot, our sages, to speak to us and share with us. The next Pirke Avoteinu will be Friday night, January 30, when David Rottman will speak. We hope you’ll join us in taking in all of the wisdom that David has to offer.

Salasky Speaker

Renowned Jewish author and George Washington University English professor Faye Moskowitz will be this winter’s Salasky Speaker at Temple Beth El, speaking during services on Friday night, February 13. Faye has written several very popular books of short stories; many of her stories describe her Jewish upbringing Jewish in Michigan. Faye’s book, Whoever Finds This: I Love You, will be the TBE Book Club’s selection for the month of February.
