Saturday 27 January, 12PM
Theme: Tu B’Shvat. Let’s celebrate the New year for the trees, have lunch with some special Tu B’Shvat treats and learn about Jewish connections to environment with Rabbi Jonathan. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share.
Rabbi Jonathan introduces the few relevant texts and shows it is by no means as clear cut a matter as you may have thought. Kiddush Hashem (‘sanctification of God’s name’ – dying to preserve God’s values) is not only lauded but mandated in certain situations, and the death penalty is liberally mandated.
Discussion will run until 12pm, with coffee break.
A sparkling night of comedy at LBC! In association with the Melbourne Jewish Comedy Festival, we bring you fresh Jewish comedy at its best!
Tickets $25 full/$15 concession
