First Friday Shabbat Zoom Gathering

May 5, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

- Free

Please join us on Friday, May 5 for our First Friday Shabbat Zoom where special guest Dr. Len Radin will present “Finding Gems in the Garbage.” Did you know that one of the ancient Greek Tragedies was written by a nice Jewish boy? He wrote a Jewish story that is filled with the same love and war, freedom and enslavement, heartbreak and glory, and violence and tenderness that one would find in any great Greek Tragedy. Come to our Zoom Shabbat to learn about the oldest Jewish play in existence and the fascinating story of how it survived, almost unknown, for 22 centuries.

Dr. Len Radin has been a CBI member for 50 years. He has been in theatre almost his entire life and taught theatre for 25 years as a volunteer director and teacher at Drury High School. He was inducted into the Educational Theatre Association’s Hall of Fame in Washington D.C. in 2000 for his innovative work in teaching theatre and was awarded a Point of Light Award by the governor of Massachusetts.

As always, we will gather together around the Zoom table to celebrate the Jewish traditions of Shabbat, light the candles, and bless the wine and challah.
