A Jewish Reading of Sura 1 of the Qur'an with Rabbi Emeritus Leonard Gordon

"A Jewish Reading of Sura 1 of the Qur'an"

Charry Memorial Shabbat Potluck & Evening Program

with Rabbi Emeritus Leonard Gordon

Please join us for the start of GJC's 32nd annual Rabbi Elias Charry Memorial Weekend! At 6:00 PM, GJC's beloved monthly musical service, Kol Zimrah, will be led by Rabbi Adam Zeff and Nina Peskin in the Charry Sanctuary.  At 7:15 PM, in GJC's Temin Canteen Room, come together for a vegetarian Friday Night Shabbat Potluck, where Rabbi Emeritus Leonard Gordon will present an evening program, "A Jewish Reading of Sura 1 of the Qur’an." The first Sura (chapter) of the Qur'an is short and it contains terms and ideas familiar to us from the High Holiday liturgy and the Bible. How might these verses bridge our traditions?

Please register for the potluck and program by Thursday, November 9th.

* Please note: All dishes must be vegetarian. Please label your dish, and specify if it's gluten-free, vegan, pareve, dairy, or contains nuts. Dishes can be warmed up; please include a note if it should be heated. All dishes must be brought to the GJC office by 4:00 PM on Friday, November 10th. Thank you!
