Conversation Pieces: Author Barbara Weisberg Talks About Her New Book

Save the Date: Sunday, March 31st @ 3pm at the Synagogue

Author and TCS member, Barbara Weisberg will join us to discuss her new book, Strong Passions: A Scandalous Divorce in Old New York. The book recounts the true story of a tumultuous marriage. In 1862, Mary Strong stunned her husband, Peter, by confessing to a two-year affair with his brother. Peter sued Mary for divorce for adultery—the only grounds in New York—but not before she accused him of forcing her into an abortion and having his own affair with the abortionist. She then kidnapped their young daughter and disappeared.

The divorce trial Strong v. Strong riveted the nation during the final throes and aftermath of the Civil War, offering a shocking glimpse into the private world of New York’s powerful and privileged elite. The book presents the chaotic courtroom and panoply of witnesses—governess, housekeeper, private detective, sisters-in-law, and many others—who provided contradictory and often salacious testimony, and then asks us to be the jury, deciding each spouse’s guilt and the possibility of a just resolution.

Publisher's Weekly calls the book "a captivating chronicle of a high-society scandal that riveted the nation...a page-turning glimpse into the lives of 19th century New York's upper crust."

Reading Jeremiah - A Series on the Prophet Jeremiah

A six-part series on the first Saturday of each month, begining in January, from 1pm-2:30pm

Jan 27 / Feb 17 / March 2, 30 / April 20 / May 11 / June 1, 22

Led by member Fran Synder @ The Chatham Synagogue

The prophet Jeremiah is the most theatrical guide for contemporary Jews to walk with the god-in-history. In 587 BCE, Jeremiah witnessed the destruction of Jerusalem and King Solomon’s Temple by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, and the beginning of the Babylonian exile. His incisive descriptions of the political situations and social conditions of his time make the ancient world feel familiar to us.

Not so his theology. Jeremiah understood the Babylonian assault as God’s punishment of Israel’s sins. He rages at God, he originates the idea of suing God, and he affronts all human authority. In the end, though, hope springs eternal. Jeremiah predicts the return to Judea and the restoration of Jerusalem. His letter to the deported community in Babylon with advice for living in exile is a model for how Jews have lived in all of our diasporas. 

This Continuing Education course will meet in the Synagogue library on the first Shabbat of every month, after services and kiddush lunch.
