Taught by Rabbi Hilly Haber
In an age of radical polarization in modern society, with a rise in religious fundamentalism on the one hand and a rise of atheism on the other, how does Jewish tradition approach dilemmas of faith? Based on classical Jewish tradition and contemporary Jewish thought and life, Rabbi Haber will address the big questions raised by the intersection of faith and reason, faith and history, and faith and politics.

We continue our decades-long tradition of partnering with Saint Peter’s Church to observe Yom HaShoah—Holocaust Remembrance Day—and show that people of all faiths are committed to ending genocide and memorializing this dark chapter in our history.
Rabbi Emeritus Peter J. Rubinstein will be the keynote speaker at this 36th annual commemoration.
Leading the service will be: Rabbi Ari Lorge, Cantor Julia Cadrain, and St. Peter’s Senior Pastor Amandus J. Derr and Pastors Jared R. Stahler and Fabian Arias. Arrive early to receive your own Holocaust Memorial Guide, created by our LCLJ 6th grade class.
Location: Lindenbaum Pavilion
From: Monday, April 20, 2020
Join Judy Glickman Lauder at an opening reception for her exhibition of photographs from her book “Beyond the Shadows: The Holocaust and the Danish Exception.” In this exhibition, Lauder captures the devastation of Nazi death camps in a series of dark and haunting photos, and then, in contrast, presents uplifting portraits of Danish citizens who risked everything to save Jewish lives. The photo exhibition will remain in the Pavilion through the end of May. The reception will begin immediately after our annual interfaith Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) service, which begins at 6:00 pm in the sanctuary.
Open to all; Cost: Free
