SUNDAY: 

Temple Israel University Presents: Two Upcoming Classes Led by Rabbi Amy & Rabbi Michael

The REAL Story of Hanukah
Sunday, December 2
9:45 am – 11:15 am in the Board Room
Join the Rabbis for adult story time where they’ll reveal the REAL story of Hanukah – and it’s not about oil or miracles! Let’s just say there’s a revolt, some societal inequality and a bit of religious coercion, and of course, some fierce Jewish women wielding axes… You don’t want to miss this!

Making Hanukah Special… in a World Filled with Candy Canes & Santa Claus
Sunday, December 9
9:45 am – 11:15 am in the Board Room
This discussion is ideal for interfaith couples/families and for anyone trying to figure out how to make Hanukah special in a world with a smorgasbord of competing holiday traditions. This meeting will be an open forum to focus on best practices, share our own experiences and successes, and a safe space to navigate the nuances of the holiday season.

No RSVP necessary. Come to one or both.
Child care available upon request to Rabbi Amy at afeder@ti-stl.org.
