Nosh & Knowledge Presents: The Many Faces of King David

Nosh & Knowledge Presents: The Many Faces of King David

We tend to think of King David as heroic – the slayer of Goliath and the one who united Israel into one kingdom. But many of David’s actions were disturbingly “un-heroic”. Please join us as we examine the many faces of David, the second King of Israel. This program will be presented by Beverly Rubman and Roslyn Vanderbilt. A kosher lunch will be served and there is a suggested donation of $5.00 per person. RSVP is required by 8/31 to Beth Englezos at bethe@jfcsonline.org or 609-987-8100, ext. 126.
