International Day of Halakhic Study
Sunday, May 6, 2018 | 1:30 p.m.
Blue Slide Park, 2005 Beechwood Blvd, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15217
The Torah speaks of kilayim, prohibited mixtures, which begs the question: how do we deal with genetically modified organisms?
Join us for the first International Day of Halakhic Study, sponsored by the Rabbinical Assembly of the Conservative/Masorti movement! We’ll look at the recent halakhic ruling and discuss what it might mean for how we eat.
We’ll meet near Blue Slide Park (Frick Park) to relax and discuss. So don’t forget to bring your favorite kosher snacks and your appetite for conversation!
For questions, please reach out to Rabbi Jeremy Markiz at firstname.lastname@example.org

Coffee with the Cantor – Perceptions of Modern Judaism
Every Wednesday at 11:00 a.m.
Congregation Beth Shalom | Lehman Center
Come and participate in “Coffee with the Cantor” – a stimulating discussion group led by our Executive Director, Hazzan (Cantor) Rob Menes.
This year we will be discussing “Perceptions of Modern Judaism.” How do Jewish customs and rituals interact with the Christian and secular world of North America? How is Israel perceived in America? Why is there still anti-Semitism in North America?
Throughout the year we will investigate sometimes controversial practices and discuss both the Jewish and non-Jewish reactions to them. Coffee will be provided by the Cantor!
Every Wednesday, 11 AM till 12 in the Lehman Center. Signup not required.
