A Modzitzer Melaveh Malkah

The program, part lecture, part music, part tasteful refreshments, will celebrate the musical tradition of the Modzitzer Chassidic dynasty, whose melodies are known to every Jew who steps into a shul, whether at Kaballat Shabbat, Musaf, or the Yamim Noraim

The program will be dedicated in honor of Judy and Abe Keehn, who have graciously extended their chesed to our shul in so many ways over the years

In a separate email:
Our very own Rabbi Moshe Rosenberg will soon start two series of on-line shiurim at this exciting site, a burgeoning center of Torah learning.
First up is Morality for Muggles, Wednesdays February 13 - March 5, at 9:30pm Eastern Time (4 Weeks). Rabbi Rosenberg will draw on his experience teaching and writing about Harry Potter and Judaism to examine two themes each week in which each can illuminate the other. Some topics: Lost and Found, Three by Three, Manners, A Wand to Call My Own, G-d's Unbreakable Vow.
His second series will be Ta'amei Ha-Mikrah as Interpretive Tools, Wednesdays March 12 - April 2, at 9:30pm Eastern Time (4 Weeks). Far beyond mere musical instructions, the ta'amei hamikrah teach us how to divide, and thus interpret the words of Tanakh. In three sessions you will learn the hierarchy of the ta'amim, explore some of their interpretations of key verses, and observe the attitude of reverence, yet challenge, adopted by medieval parshanim towards those interpretations. An optional fourth session will deal with when one is obligated to correct a ba'al koreh, when one need not, and when one must not.
