Yom Hashoah Program: "Survivors"
a play created by Alan Breindel and adapted by Bernie Kukoff and Lucile Lichtblau
Saturday, April 15 at 7:30pm
Followed by a talkback with Alan Breindel
at St. James Church, 117 Hudson Ave., Chatham
In conjunction with St. James Church, we are presenting a special Yom Hashoah program - a staged reading of "Survivors," a first hand account of four Holocaust survivors.
A little more than a decade ago, after hearing his Short Hills, NJ neighbor's powerful story of survival, the play's creator, Alan Breindel, decided he wanted to meet more survivors and find a way to amplify their stories. He ended up interviewing several more people from his community, all of whom, like his neighbor, managed to evade the concentrations camps, telling harrowing tales of how they survived. Briendel combined their stories into a moving play that has been adapted into a staged reading by Bernie Kukoff and Lucile Lichtblau.

Conversation Pieces: Rabbi Michael Strassfeld Talks About His Book, "Judaism Disrupted: A Spiritual Manifesto for the 21st Century

April 30th, 4pm

Please join us for this special event - TCS/NT member, Rabbi Michael Strassfeld will talk about his new book, published on the 50th anniversary of his 1973 breakthrough best-seller, "The Jewish Catalog," which has sold over 300,000 copies.

In A Spiritual Manifesto Rabbi Strassfeld, who spent 25 years as a Reconstructionist rabbi in New York City, is calling for a seismic shift in Jewish practice. Strassfeld’s vision of Judaism is compassionate and flexible, and he’s frank about the challenges the religion faces without resorting to apocalyptic predictions about its survival. The book provides a framework for a new paradigm and helps the reader explore the evolution of an ancient faith – showing how it can be reinvigorated and practiced anew.
