    JTS Evening of Learning
    Sunday, Apr 29th 5:00p to 9:00p
    Our discourse around Israel—especially in this historic year—tends to focus on the modern state and contemporary questions of sovereignty and coexistence. But why is Israel so important to us to begin with? At this year’s JTS Evening of Learning, we will explore the role that the Land of Israel has played in the Jewish imagination over the course of millennia and consider how this resonates with us today. The evening will conclude with a festive leil shirah (communal singing) led by local cantors and open to the community at no charge. A celebration of Jewish learning featuring JTS’s renowned faculty and fellows, including: • DR. ELISSA BEMPORAD, JTS Fellow and Associate Professor of East European Jewish History and the Holocaust at Queens College and the CUNY Graduate Center • DR. HILLEL BEN-SASSON, Assistant Professor of Israel Studies, JTS • DR. BENJAMIN GAMPEL, Dina and Eli Field Family Chair in Jewish History

    Men's Club and Sisterhood Brunch

    Sunday, May 6th 9:15a to 12:00p
    On Sunday, May 6, the Sisterhood will jointly sponsor the regular monthly Men’s Club brunch and speaker. Our very special guest speaker will be David Fahrenthold, an American journalist who writes for The Washington Post and serves as a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC. In 2017, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting for his coverage of Donald Trump, including the 2016 United States presidential election. Mr. Fahrenthold will talk about the lessons he has learned covering President Trump’s charitable giving and his businesses — lessons both about how to cover the Trump presidency, and about the way the president makes decisions. The Brunch will begin at approximately 9:15 a.m. in the CAHAN SANCTUARY. We expect the presentation to begin at about 10:15 and conclude no later than 11:30 a.m. There is no cost to Men’s Club or Sisterhood members; non- members are asked for a donation to defray the costs of the Brunch.

    Share Shabbat
    Friday, May 11th 7:30p to 9:00p
    Register now for Friday, May 11th when Har Shalom will participate in our 3rd Share Shabbat of the season. Share Shabbat is our way of making our synagogue more accessible and personal by sharing the relaxing and intimate Shabbat meal with other members -- maybe you know them or maybe you don't! You are matched by your demographics; that is, if you indicate you are an empty-nester then you will be placed with others in that same demographic. If you are a family with young children, then we try to place you with other similar-type families.

    Shavuot Living Room Learning: “For the Love of the Land; A text-study about the Jewish people’s connection to Eretz Yisrael”
    Shabbat, May 19th 9:00p to 11:00p
    This year, we are dedicating our Shavuot learning to the topic: “For the Love of the Land; A text-study about the Jewish people’s connection to Eretz Yisrael.” We will explore sacred texts as well as modern writings that describe what has bound the Jewish people to this land since the days of Abraham and Sarah. Rather than gathering at the synagogue, we are going to study in micro-communities, with wonderful hosts opening their homes for living room style learning. Erev Shavuot is Saturday night, May 19th, and we will begin our observance in each of the homes below with Havdalah at 9:00 PM. There will also be cheesecake, the official food of Shavuot!
