Decisions made under extreme pressure define a person’s character and set in motion consequences that create the heroes and heroines in Ari’s Spoon, a novel based on real people and events that took place during the World War II Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and its aftermath.
 
 
Everyone is invited to attend the discussion of Ari’s Spoon.

 REMIX JUDAISM

By: Roberta Rosenthal Kwall

 

Many American non-Orthodox Jews are not interested in Jewish practice and ritual. And many younger Jews have even less interest even in moderate observance than their parents.  Left unchecked, this reality will sink the future of American Judaism.

These conversations need to be spearheaded by both clergy and Jewish organizations. Studies of the American Jewish community are clear that we are moving far too quickly into a world strongly divided between the deeply religious and the Jewish “nones.” This is not a world in which our current Jewish organizational structure can survive let alone thrive.
