Humanistic Judaism Study Group - KS Community Room

The topic for this week is the holiday of Rosh Hashanah La’Behemot or New Year for Animals. The holiday falls on the first of Elul, the month before Rosh Hashanah and this year begins the evening of August 31. In Temple times this holiday marked the start date for animal tithes. Sound familiar? Tu B’Shevat, or New Year for Trees, marked the start date for tithing the produce of trees. Modern Judaism has made Tu B’Shevat an environmental holiday. Is it time to make Rosh Hashanah La’Behemot a holiday celebrating the animals of the world? Read more from Hazon the Jewish Lab for Sustainability

Yiddish Club - KS Community Room

Teiereh khaverim,

Come and bring your friends. Get your Yiddish on, your life will be richer for it.
We'll start again with songs, which we'll read in transliteration or Yiddish, and translation, talk about the songs' histories, and then see and hear them performed on YouTube. Vilne and Vu Iz Dos Gesele, songs of longing, and Itsik Hot Khasene Gehat, a comic song about marriage. Then we'll write a little Yiddish with Lexcilogos Hebrew Keyboard and a phonetically transliterated Yiddish alphabet. And time permitting, we'll return to Lesson 3 in our text, Yiddish In 10 Lessons, and fiddle with verbs and tenses and maybe a little bit of vocabulary.

Topic this month is Women in the Bible. This is another huge topic! The attached document https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_the_Bible is from Wikipedia and includes short biographies of women in different roles. There are a couple of daughters-in-law, a prostitute, several queens, some judges/prophets and even a witch. All of them are influential.
