Saturday, September 20 8:00PM
Our engaging discussion on the prayer U-Netaneh Tokef will be framed by Shalom Auslander’s “Playoffs: Keeping the Sabbath and rooting for the Rangers.” The synagogue office has copies of the story available; please pick up a copy, or let us know if you’d like to have one mailed to you. Please note: Shalom Auslander is known for being an “edgy” and controversial author. This particular story, which was published in The New Yorker, contains profanity.
