During our Shabbat service, we will have a special visit from guest speaker Hillá Meller, who will be visiting Colorado to talk about the Leo Beack Education Center, a wonderful and very valuable institution. The presentation will focus on two of the main areas that the Leo Baeck Education Center specializes in - Jewish pluralism and helping children at risk - and it will be suitable for families. There will be an opportunity to ask our guest speaker questions during the Oneg following the service.

How many bands do you know who dip their toes into Bluegrass, Celtic, and the Blues, all in a single evening? Only one that we know of, Moors & McCumber. Folk music was never more beautifully performed than by this incredibly talented duo of Americana musicians. Ticket information.

B'nai Chaim offers several adult Hebrew classes:
Beginner Level -- Taught by Sandy at the Temple on Sundays from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM. The book the class uses is "Aleph Isn't Tough, An introduction to Hebrew for Adults", Book 1, by Linda Motzkin. It is available on Amazon. The class usually follows the Religious School schedule, but different arrangements are occasionally made, so please stay in touch with Sandy.
Intermediate Level -- Taught by Sophie at the Temple on Wednesdays from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM. The class reads through prayers. The schedule usually matches the Hebrew School schedule, although different arrangements are occasionally made, so please keep in touch with Sophie.
Advanced Level -- Taught by Buddy at the Temple on Sundays from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM. The class uses the "First Hebrew Primer" 3rd Edition, by Simon, Resnikoff, Motzkin, which is available on Amazon. Please contact Buddy Schweig for more information about the schedule, etc.
Please note: A $36 contribution to Religious School is requested as tuition, and students need to buy their own books.
Who among us is so busy that he or she cannot spend 10 minutes a day in the study of a Jewish text? Just 10 minutes? Such a commitment would enable us to meet our Jewish obligation to make Jewish study a fixed occurrence. If we make time to answer our cell phones a dozen times a day and to check our email five times an hour, surely we can find 10 minutes to contemplate sacred words that nourish the soul.
