    Brunch and Presentation by Rabbi Jonathan: "Jewish Values in Troubled Times"

    We are pleased to present one of our occasional series of brunches sponsored by the WJC Membership Committee. Rabbi Jonathan will speak about "Jewish Values in Troubled Times." How are Jews to respond when a president supports Israel as vigorously as Donald Trump does, yet is cruel and immoral in so many of his dealings? The prime Jewish value of supporting Israel appears to be in conflict with other key Jewish values supporting justice, honesty and kindness. Discussion will follow the presentation.

    All are welcome, bring a veggie/dairy dish to share if you are able, and enjoy the food provided by the WJC Membership Committee, our event organizers. Monetary donations are also welcome.

    FINAL SESSION Adult Education Series: "A Rabbi and a Priest Study the Gospels Together" with Rabbi Jonathan Kligler and Reverend Matthew Wright

    Rabbi Jonathan Kligler and the Reverend Matthew Wright continue and deepen our exploration of the intersections between Judaism and Christianity. In this class series we will study the Christian Gospels of the New testament in their original context: Judaism of the 1st century C.E. We will compare and contrast the teachings of Jesus to contemporaneous teachings of the Rabbis, and we will explore the accounts of Jesus life as a complex midrash on classic Jewish sources.

    Our course will extend over 10 sessions in November, December and January. Suggested donation: $75 for the series for members of WJC and St. Gregory's, $150 General; $7.50 per class for members of WJC and St. Gregory's, $15 General

    Please contact Rabbi Jonathan with any questions or concerns.
