This is the first in a series of an exciting new way to celebrate Shabbat. The evening starts with a brief service at 6:30 p.m., followed by a catered dinner at 7:00 p.m. with a special guest speaker or program. Our guest speaker this month is Rabbi Michael Klein-Katz, a spokesman for liberal Judaism in Israel. He has founded, led and furthered Jewish-Christian study groups, Arab-Jewish projects, courses for the study of Judaism by Jews and non-Jews alike, and taught on the faculty of the Sisters of Zion Sabbatical Program for Catholic clergy for ten years. Presently, he serves as a lecturer in a number of Israel-based study programs, a visiting scholar at home and abroad, and on the auxiliary staff at the St. Louis Hospice as a therapeutic clown. He is also a longtime friend of Rabbi Guttman.
Vickie & John Kilimanjaro Named 5778 (2017-18) “Book of the New Year” Honorees
Vickie & John Kilimanjaro were married on the pulpit of our Greene Street Campus over 60 years ago and they raised their family here in Greensboro. Together they founded the Carolina Peacemaker, the third oldest African American newspaper in North Carolina.
They are incredible civil rights icons in our town and their love of Judaism combined with a strong advocacy for social justice is just part of why they are our honorees this year!
The Book of the New Year will be given out on Rosh Hashanah and we want you to be a part of it:
* Honor the Kilimanjaros with a special Mazel Tov message.
* Wish the congregation a Happy New Year!
* Memorialize your loved ones.
* Update your directory information.
* Share photos of special simchas like weddings, births and b’nai mitzvah from the past year!
