Week in Review: March 1st, 2013


Shabbat shalom! What a terrific week! Any week that starts with a fun holiday like Purim is certainly a terrific week – even if accompanied by a mini-blizzard.

The week ended with several competing programs on Thursday night. How do you feel about overlapping programs – is it better to have many choices in one night, or something each night of the week? Leave us a comment and let us know your opinion.

Nathan Englander

One of these programs – author Nathan Englander at CU – was well attended by a wide variety of the community. We were treated to two readings from What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank, as well as a rather wide-ranging discussion (Professor David Shneer asked a question, leading to a wide-ranging response by Englander, rinse and repeat). He is also the translator of The New American Hagaddah.

Speaking of Hagaddah. . .the countdown is on to Passover! But before now and then, don’t forget that this weekend is the National Day of Unplugging, also known as Shabbat. What would you pledge to unplug for? And after you plug back in, there’s Sunday’s concert at Bonai Shalom. Have a great Shabbat Unplugged!

    I prefer not to have overlapping events- often each event is one that I would attend so I don't want to have to make a choice.
