DESCRIPTION: Although headlines might have us believing differently, Interfaith marriage is not a new issue for the Jewish community. Using texts ancient and modern, and through her personal story, Rabbi Adena Blum will share her insights on this topic. 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.
RSVP: is required by 10/18 to Beth Englezos at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-987-8100, ext. 126.
This program is sponsored by Congregation Beth Chaim, Greenwood House & JFCS.
DESCRIPTION: Freedom Song is a trans formative musical created by Beit T’Shuvah that interweaves the story of Passover and personal stories of addiction.
The cast is made up of addicts in recovery from drugs, alcohol, gambling and other destructive behaviors.
This performance will dispel the myth that Jews are immune to addiction and the message will resonate with all.
Through songs, dance, tears, laughter and post-show discussion with the cast, Freedom Song will open your eyes to the real life struggle against the “bondage of self” that we all fight every day.
