Or Emet will host a Shabbat service followed by a program about Jewish storytelling and the legend of the Lamed Vavnik from 7:30-9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9, at the Minnesota JCC Sabes Center Minneapolis, 4330 S. Cedar Lake Road, Minneapolis. The service will be led by Eva Cohen, Or Emet’s ritual leader and a Humanistic rabbi-in-training.
After the service, Faith Oremland, a Twin Cities storyteller and longtime member of Or Emet, will address questions such as: Can stories change the world? Is the legend of the Lamed Vavnik true and are you a Lamed Vavnik? What was Isaac Bashevis Singer thinking when he wrote “Gimpel the Fool”? Please join us for a lively discussion! A social time will follow the program.
All attendees must wear a mask and show proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID test. Those who cannot attend in person may join over Zoom. Please register in advance here.
