    Seven Sacred Steps: Demystifying Mikvah  
    Monday, Dec 10th 7:30p to 9:00p
    Join Rabbi Yael for a deep dive into the ancient ritual of mikvah. We will demystify this mysterious Jewish space by exploring traditional and contemporary, creative uses of mikvah. How can mikvah be used as a ritual for healing, or to mark the passage of time and life transitions? This class may be for you if you are curious about mikvah, or if you want to experience mikvah for the first time with a supportive community. Or, this class may be for you if you are going through a life transition -- such as marriage or divorce, illness or healing, infertility or pregnancy. This inaugural "Demystifying Mikvah" series will be open to women. If you are not a woman and are interested in this class - please contact Rabbi Yael so we can plan for the future.

    Responsa for the 21st Century: Early Morning Study with Rabbi Kalmanofsky
    Tuesday, Dec 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.

    Why is Israel the New Hollywood: Moshe Zonder on Fauda
    Thursday, Dec 13th 7:00p to 9:00p
    Nothing is hotter in American Television than… Israeli Television.

Come join the Ansche Chesed community as we hear Moshe Zonder, Head Writer of Fauda, as he shares with us the background of the show, and why he thinks Israeli television is the new trend in must-see TV.

    Tween Book Club: “The War Within”
    Shabbat, Jan 12th 1:00p to 2:00p
    Tweens in Grades 4 through 7 are invited to our “AC Tween Book Club” to discuss the book “The War Within: A Novel of the Civil War" by Carol Matas, facilitated by Sheila Lewis and Youth Director, Deena Cowans. What if you and a close relative, even a sister, held strong but different political opinions that threatened to tear you apart? …It’s not taking place in 2019, but in 1862, when two sisters, Hannah and Joanna Green of Mississippi, disagree on the issue of slavery. As Southern Jews, the family is misplaced because of their religion. How do their arguments connect to Jewish values? How is this question relevant to Jews today? Kids are encouraged (though not required) to read the book ahead of time. It’s available for purchase at local book stores, libraries and online. Please take lunch from the Community Kiddush in Hirsh Hall after the Sanctuary Service, then join us on the 3rd floor at 1PM for Book Club with your lunch. Contact Youth Director Deena Cowans with any questions: dcowans@anschechesed.org.

    Lost and Found Exhibit at the Center for Jewish History
    Sunday, Jan 13th 11:00a to 1:00p
    The Lost & Found exhibit at the Center for Jewish History will tell the remarkable story of a family photo album that was owned and assembled in the years leading up to World War II by Anna Warshawska, who was deported in 1943 from the Kovno Ghetto together with most of her family. Prior to her deportation, Anna, more intimately known as Annushka, smuggled the album out of the city’s wartime Jewish ghetto, entrusting it to a non-Jewish Lithuanian family for safekeeping. The album was rediscovered in 2013 and, after some sleuthing and fortuitous discoveries, reunited with the descendants of Warshawska’s family. Join an Ansche Chesed group, led by member David Roskies, whose family photos were found in creating this exhibit. Meet at the Center by 11am.
