Meet My Rabbi, Bring Your Dog – Thursday at Bonai Shalom

I am so excited that my rabbi, mentor and friend from London, Rabbi Jonathan Wittneberg, will be in Boulder very briefly this week and will be talking about two of his amazing books on Thursday at Bonai Shalom. Rabbi Jonathan’s most recent publication is Things My Dog Has Taught Me about Being a Better Human and we invite you and your well-behaved dogs to come to the back of Bonai Shalom for a special canine blessing and talk about the book at 6pm on Thursday.

At 7.30 pm, Jonathan will be talking about his much acclaimed recent My Dear Ones: One Family and the Final Solution, the extraordinary story of his German family pieced together from 100s of letters found in an attic.

Rabbi Jonathan is passionate and articulate and inspirational and I hope you will get a chance to meet him and join us for one or both of these talks.
