    Ansche Chesed Second Seder 2020
    Thursday, Apr 9th 7:00p to 11:00p
    We wish we were hosting our usual public Seder, but that is obviously impossible. Under normal circumstances, we would not choose to have a seder through electronic media, but these are not normal circumstances. Given all the social distancing, we need some communal togetherness. So we are going to Zoom Through the Haggadah for those who want it. On Thursday, April 9 at 7 pm please join us at https://anschechesed.org/2ndSeder. No prior registration is necessary. But if you're planning on joining us, please let us know, so we can plan roles and assignments for some people.

    AC Salon with Dan Lenchner: A Photographic VIew of Life In Israel

He recently spent five weeks in Israel during which time the country first began to experience the coronavirus, was engaged with its third election in one year, and celebrated Purim. During the salon he will talk about images he made in this period which reflect these three events as well as those photographs that comment on life in Israel in a broader day-to-day sense. Dan has deep Israeli roots but is also steeped in the history of photography - a lover of Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Paul Strand, and Anonymous.
