ROSH CHODESH MEETING, MAY 24 – CH 6 – 3 pm
Pat Steinberg is the speaker at the May 24 Rosh Chodesh meeting. Her topic is “Women and Islam”. Pat is a very special and highly qualified member of our Temple. In addition to being a Registered Nurse, she is a talented teacher of Kaballah, comparative religions, especially Islam, as well as a variety of other topics. Rosh Chodesh is fortunate to be able to present this special woman speaking about a most timely subject. All female Temple members are invited to participate. The meeting begins in Clubhouse 6 at 3:00 with refreshments and conversation. As part of an ongoing Mitzvah Project, each month Rosh Chodesh members bring nonperishable foodstuffs and sundries (not clothing) to the meeting. These are distributed to South County Outreach.

Guest Lecture Series – May 26 - Rabbi Wayne Dosick, author of many well received books, will be our speaker at the May 26th Lecture series event in Clubhouse one at 10 in the morning. Wayne is a passionate speaker who also has a great sense of humor. His latest book, The Real Name of God: Embracing the Full Essence of the Divine has been very popular and our Rabbi Ben has mentioned its power. Rabbi Dosick will reveal the full name of God and its place in each one of us; the real name which unites all religions worldwide. Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Reform Temple Book – June 15, Clubhouse 5, MR 2 10-11:30 am
Naomi Regan has created a gripping and disturbing novel which may be a difficult read for some to read because of the child and spousal abuse described, which is based on a true event. The Devil in Jerusalem tells the story of a young religious American couple who decide to move to Israel and join a Jewish religious cult community. The story opens with an ambulance racing through the quiet streets of Jerusalem with a seriously ill child alone inside on the way to the hospital.The Book Club meets the third Wednesday of every month All Temple members are invited to read our June selection and join our conversation. There is no charge. Please call Lee Kobin 949-540-3885.
