    Jews, God, and History (Not Necessarily in That Order)
    Shabbat, Jun 1st 8:00p to 10:00p
    Jews, God, and History (Not Necessarily in That Order) is a two-act work of solo theater by Ansche Chesed member Michael Takiff that, through comedy and drama, looks at how modern humans live with ancient traditions. The show explores the big questions asked by people of all origins and beliefs: about God, faith, reason, good and evil, heritage, tribe. ​​​​​​​NOTE: Jews, God, and History is not a “safe” show. Some language is salty and some ideas – about Jews, about God, about history – would have gotten you kicked out of Hebrew school. Be forewarned: Heresy in the house.

    Responsa for the 21st Century: Early Morning Study with Rabbi Kalmanofsky
    Tuesday, Jun 11th 8:15a to 9:00a
    The tradition of Jewish wisdom stretches back millennia, to times and places unimaginably different from our own. Sometimes we can apply ancient wisdom to modern problems, and sometimes that's not so easy. Each month we will study modern rabbinic attempts —mostly heterodox, sometimes more traditional — to answer today's questions, in areas like medical, social, economic, and political ethics.

    Speaker: Evie Litwok from the Suitcase Project
    Thursday, Jun 20th 7:00p to 9:00p
    Every year, 700,000 people are released from prison. In the New York area alone, 50,000 are expected to reenter the community this year. “Too many of these returning citizens have no support network, and often remain on the streets, without access to any supportive resources,” says Evie Litwok, Founder and Executive Director of Witness to Mass Incarceration. People returning to the community after paying their debts to society deserve basic necessities.

    AC at the Staten Island Yankees
    Sunday, Jul 28th 11:30a to 4:30p
    Take me out to the ball game! Take me out with the crowd! Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, I don't care if I never get back... Is there a better way there to spend a summer afternoon than a day at the park? The Staten Island Yankees will play the Lowell Spinners (a minor league team of the Boston Redsox), and we'll root, root, root for the home team! The game begins at 1pm, but we will meet at the Staten Island Ferry terminal (Manhattan side) at 11:30am so that we can all go together. If you will be going on your own, please email druskay@anschechesed.org and we will arrange to have your tickets waiting for you at the will-call window at the park. Come and enjoy a fun day of "New York Pizza Rat" baseball. Kosher food available for purchase at the ballpark!
