A Reminder From The Rabbi

Just a reminder that the reservation deadline for the Scholar-In Residence Shabbaton is quickly approaching. If you haven’t already done so, please send your check/reservation ($75 per person): attention Gerty Nassi, 3000 Island Blvd., Suite S-127, Aventura, FL 33160, no later than, Sunday January 27, 2019.

As indicated in previous correspondence, we will be hosting Rabbi Dr. Dovid Katz, the Spiritual Leader Congregation Beth Abraham, in Baltimore, Maryland, a noted Talmud Scholar and Johns Hopkins University History professor.

During the course of the weekend, Rabbi Dr. Katz will give three lectures. He will speak Friday night at the conclusion of a reservation only Shabbat Dinner. He will give the key note address during Shabbat/Saturday morning services (before Musaf). His final presentation will take place Saturday afternoon, one hour before Mincha.

The topics for Rabbi Dr. Katz’s presentations are as follows:

Friday night:

A penitent Jew and how Israel got the A-Bomb: A tale from the Eisenhower era.

Shabbat morning Pre-Musaf Drasha:

“I shall set your border” (Exodus 23:31) – A tale of a North Carolina Christian and how Israel won the close vote in the General Assembly in November 1947.

Shabbat afternoon lecture:

U.S. History of Rabbis, Presidents and immigration.

On Friday, February 1, services will begin at 5:45 pm. The reservation-only full course catered Shabbat Dinner Buffet will take place 7 pm at the 2600 Building Party Room.

We look forward to seeing you at what I am sure, with your participation, will prove to be a meaningful and inspirational Shabbaton.
