JFCS & Beth El Seniors Present: Fanciful Creatures of Judaism

Description: All civilizations create imaginary creatures to explain away various happenings for which they have no logical explanations.  The number of beings may depend on the religious or naturalistic belief structures that have been developed throughout time.  Along with Laurie Dinerstein-Kurs, the question we will answer is: Has Judaism succumbed to this occurrence, and how? 

Date: Thursday November 14th at 1:00PM

Location: Beth El Synagogue (50 Maple Stream Road)

RSVP: is required by 11/8 to Beth Englezos at bethe@jfcsonline.org or 609-987-8100, ext. 126. Or call Beth El Synagogue at 609-443-4454. 

This program is sponsored by Beth El Seniors & JFCS.

Nosh & Knowledge: Free Will

Description: Free will in Judaism is the capacity to choose between different courses of actions, words or thoughts—not due to outside influence, internal nature or any sort of personal preference. Just a balanced choice between right and wrong. This notion that human beings can exercise their own free will when making moral decisions is axiomatic to Judaism. And the conflict between human free will and the omnipotence of the Creator is a pervasive theme in the Jewish narrative of history. Cantor Stuart Binder will examine this paradox that Jewish thinkers have wrestled with for thousands of year – how can God endow human beings with free will and remain God?  A kosher lunch will be provided by Greenwood House and there is a requested donation of $5.00 per person. You may also bring your own kosher-style lunch. 

Date: Thursday November 21st at 12:30PM

Location: Congregation Beth Chaim (329 Village Road East, West Windsor)

RSVP: is required by 11/15 to Beth Englezos at bethe@jfcsonline.org or 609-987-8100, ext. 126.

This program is sponsored by Congregation Beth Chaim, Greenwood House & JFCS.
