'Lunch and Learn' with Cong. Beth Israel of Ocala


Congregation Beth Israel of Ocala invites the community to a “Lunch and Learn” on Sunday Jan. 11, 2015 at 11 a.m. at the Arbor Conference Center at On Top of the World Retirement Communities in Ocala. The program will feature Rabbi Linda Holtzman who will speak about the history of the Reconstructionist movement, its contributions to Judaism and the implications for the future. Her presentation will be from the vantage point of a rabbi who has spent most of her rabbinic life working in the Reconstructionist movement.

Rabbi Holtzman, a Reconstructionist Rabbinical College graduate in 1979, is presently the rabbi of a newly founded Tikkun Olom Chavurah and is on the regular faculty of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. She has held pulpits in the Philadelphia area at Beth Israel where she was the first woman to serve a Conservative congregation, and at Beth Ahavah. She is the founder and organizer of the Reconstructionist Chevra Kadisha of Philadelphia, on the board of Philadelphia’s New Sanctuary Movement and Heeding God’s Call and on the national board of Jewish Voice for Peace.

A light lunch will be served at a cost of $5 per person. For further information, please contact Judi at 352-237-8277.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Jewish Council of North Central Florida. Congregation Beth Israel is a liberal, inclusive, community and is a Jewish Community in association with the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College.
