Israel/ARZA Committee Breakfast
Sunday, January 28, 2024 at 10:00 a.m.
Guest speaker Dr. Adam Lee Goldstein will speak on From an American Teenager Immigrating to Israel, to Trauma Surgeon, War, and a Mission for Peace through Surgery. Dr. Goldstein is the head of trauma surgery at Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel, and the co-director of Operating Together: Israeli and Palestinian Surgeons United. Dr. Goldstein aims to optimize trauma care for the community, strengthen access to care for neglected populations, and form bridges of communication and cooperation with Palestinian peers. The current war between Israel and Hamas has created tremendous challenges, but has not diminished his resolve to promote healing on both sides of the border. While registration is closed for the breakfast, you can listen to the talk in person or via Zoom. Check the weekly email for login information.

Our New Reality After October 7
A class led by Rabbi Steven Sirbu

Tuesdays, January 9, 16, 23, February 6, 2024, from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m.

The October 7 attack on Israel and the war that followed has upended many of our assumptions about Israel, antisemitism, and American Jewish identity. This class, to be held in the Youth Lounge and on Zoom, will combine history and current events to help understand how we got to this point. We will also discuss the safety of Jews in the current political climate, and how pro-Israel activism has changed. Bring your questions and your opinions, but remember, each class lasts only 60 minutes.

In response to the war in Israel, Temple Emeth's Israel/Arza Committee initiated an emergency campaign to raise $5,000, by the end of Chanukah, for American Friends of Magen David Adom (AFMDA), the primary ambulance service in Israel. Please give generously so Temple Emeth can show its support for Israel and pikuach nefesh (saving lives).

Plan to attend Shabbat Evening services on Friday, December 1 at 8:00 p.m. as we welcome a guest speaker from AFMDA, Jordan Katz (pictured), who was trained by MDA and served as an ambulance driver in Israel.
