Rabbi Weill

Dear Friends,

We are privileged to benefit from each other's scholarship and wisdom. We have such an opportunity over the next couple of weeks, as congregant Dr. Steve Parker will teach material from his wealth of study and writing.

The first opportunity will be this Saturday evening. Steve will join me and Cantor Gale in leading our annual Tikkun Leil Shavuot. See additional information in this Byte message.

The second opportunity will be at Shabbat services, June 11th. Steve will offer the dvar Torah that morning, sharing material from his latest book, Ecclesiastical Authoritarianism, an insightful and entertaining exploration of one daf, or page, of Talmud. On that daf the rabbis debate the case of a husband who travels and does not return. What happens if his wife receives legal permission to remarry, and the husband later returns? Our sages had a lot to say about this complicated case of "reappearing husband." 

But wait, there's more! We are selling Steve's book for $25, and Steve is generously directing all profits from these sales to EHNTJC. If you would like to purchase the book, please call the synagogue office at (847) 675-4141. It’s a great deal!

 Shabbat Shalom,

 Rabbi Jeffrey Weill
