Announcing the kick-off to our “Distinguished Speaker” series as part of our year-long celebration of Temple Emanu-El’s 50th anniversary. The theme of our series is “Building Community” and how important that is to us in our daily lives and in the world today.
On Monday, March 9th at 7:00 pm, we will welcome Rabbi Uri Regev, internationally renowned leader and advocate of religious liberty and the liberal movements of Judaism in Israel and around the world.
