Family Shabbat Hike
Sponsored by TI Men’s Group

Sat July 21 | 10a

It will be a fine summer morning for a moderately strenuous hike. We’ll ascend approximately 300 feet to the hilltop orchard which boasts sweeping views of Long Island Sound, covering 3 miles round-trip. At the top we’ll have a brief Shabbat experience led by Rabbi Friedman. This hike is appropriate for children elementary school age and older. We’ll meet at the parking lot at the intersection of Freeborn Road and Elm Drive in Easton. Please park in that lot or along Elm Drive if the lot is full. Carpools encouraged.

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.
