Men’s Study Group with Rabbi Friedman
An opportunity to explore issues that are important to us: our role at home as a father and a husband, the ethics of being an employer or employee, enacting our values in the world as a Jew and a human being.

The Marvelous Men of ‘Maisel’
Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has taken our country by storm. It tells the story of Miriam, an aspiring comedian from an affluent Jewish family in 1960s New York. Along the way, ‘Maisel’ offers hilarious insights into family life and identity. We will examine several scenes from the show alongside Jewish wisdom as we ask: what does ‘Maisel’ reflect about being a man? A husband? A father? A business owner? A mensch?

Israel’s Pivotal Election:
Leading Candidates, Key Issues, and the Future of the Jewish State
On April 9 Israelis will go to the polls to define the direction of the Jewish State for the next several years.  Rabbi Friedman will provide an up-to-the-minute perspective just two days prior to the election.  We will study the current party structure of the Knesset, analyze campaign ads, and delve into the issues the candidates are using to define their positions.
