Scholar in Residence

October 27, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Rabbi Gary Zola will be joining Temple Beth Israel for a Scholar in Residence Weekend.


The unfolding legacy of any North American congregation, organization, or association, consistently offers us an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of historical milestones and
significant anniversaries – like Temple Beth Israel’s 100th anniversary. In this first address, Dr. Zola, will illustrate how the American Jewish past invariably shapes our contemporary
circumstances. He examines this topic by focusing on the biographies of little known but genuinely fascinating American Jews. These “case studies” constitute genuine examples
of American Jewish courage, and Dr. Zola will demonstrate how these biographies can be transformed into an inspiring lesson that sheds light not only on significance of local Jewish history but also on the lofty meaning of the American Jewish experience itself.
