CBE is excited to partner with the Jewish Theological Seminary for the fifth annual JTS Evening of Learning on April 29. The program will feature several outstanding JTS scholars for a stimulating and meaningful Jewish learning experience. The focus of the studies will be “The Land of Israel: Land of Longing, Land of Promise” – JTS faculty and fellows will explore the role that the Land of Israel has played in the Jewish imagination over the course of millennia and consider how this resonates with us today. The evening will conclude with a festive leil shirah (communal singing) led by local cantors. The program will take place at Congregation B’nai Tzedek in Potomac. I hope you will take advantage of this unique community-wide study opportunity -- details and registration are at www.jtsa.edu/eveningoflearning.
