One Book, One Community
Join Rabbi Ariel Stone for an introduction to Kabbalah and discussion of the Jewish Book selection for 5775
Sunday, November 16, 2 pm
Mittelman Jewish Community Center
Each November, Portland’s Jewish community gathers to read and discuss a single Jewish Book. This year’s selection is Ruchama King Feurman’s In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist. Feurman’s novel follows Isaac Moskowitz, a former New Yorker, as he moves to Israel and encounters both love and spiritual challenges. Jonathan Kellerman called the book “a beautifully written, emotionally evocative novel enriched by fascinating characters and an unparalleled portrait of the magical city that is Jerusalem.”
Join other book lovers for an event inspired by In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist. Rabbi Ariel Stone, a scholar of Jewish Mysticism, will explain some of ancient traditions of Kabbalah, and lead a discussion of Feurman’s novel.
This event is co-sponsored by Congregations Shir Tikvah and Beit Haverim
