Shabbat: South Africa, Where Do the Jews Fit In?

Saturday, November 19, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM MT
at the Boulder Public Library – Meadows Branch, 4800 Baseline Rd, Boulder

Why does the rich country of South Africa have such a large, impoverished population? What is the involvement of the 12th largest Jewish population in the world in this emerging country?

Dr. Mark Ellyne and his wife Joyce spend half of the year in Cape Town, S.A., where Mark is Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Cape Town. We hope you can join in our brief Humanistic Shabbat of blessings over grape juice and challah, readings, songs, and Oneg snacks, followed by Mark’s presentation.

Please RSVP on our Meetup page so we know you’re coming.
How to find us: Please enter the Meadows library and then turn to the right, into the Community Room. Please sign-in when you arrive.

Beth Ami is the only Humanistic Jewish congregation in Colorado and is a proud affiliate of the Society for Humanistic Judaism. We celebrate Jewish holidays, learning and life cycle events through the secular lens of history, culture, and reason. We believe in the human capacity to create a better world without supernatural intervention.

Beth Ami is a welcoming community where we connect to Jewish past, celebrate Jewish present, and link to Jewish future through a humanistic philosophy. We encourage anyone interested in learning about Humanistic Judaism to attend this and all our events.

Let’s do Jewish together – Humanistically!

As the saying goes, ‘after the ecstasy, the laundry.’ This observation is clearly illustrated in the two latest sequential Torah portions of Yitro and Mishpatim.
