Upcoming Events

Postponed: A Moving Conversation: Walking Together

After careful consideration we have decided to postpone the hike scheduled for Sunday, July 25.
 
Over the last year and a half we have learned that there are so many things that we cannot control. In recent days the number of coronavirus cases has increased in our area. Because this may affect the ability of everyone to safely mingle and fully enjoy each other’s company, we will reschedule the hike for a later date. We look forward to getting together in the future.

Dinner and Music at Central Market North
Sunday, August 15, at 5:30 p.m.

Pick up your own dinner and drinks at Central Market and come sit with us to listen to some live music on the patio. Music TBD based on Central Market monthly calendar. RSVP to Judi Lefton at  jwlefton@gmail.com to let her know how many chairs to save. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
 
Art and Culture Program: Discussion of "Black is Beautiful: The Photography of Kwame Braithwaite"
Tuesday, August 17, 1:00 p.m., discussion by Zoom

Congregant Laraine Lasdon will facilitate a Zoom discussion about this exhibit. We will be joined by the Blanton Museum's Education/Docent leader Stephanie Kent, who has kindly offered to facilitate and will have a slide deck for us to see and talk about even if you have NOT personally visited the show. If you do want to see the exhibit in person, visit the Blanton Museum of Art on your own schedule. (FYI: The Blanton is free on Thursdays!)  

Contact Laraine Lasdon at  larainelasdon@gmail.com to RSVP and for Zoom details. 

About the exhibit: In the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s, Kwame Brathwaite (born Brooklyn, New York, 1938) used photography to popularize the political slogan “Black Is Beautiful.” This exhibition—the first ever dedicated to Brathwaite’s remarkable career—tells the story of a key figure of the second Harlem Renaissance.  


“Abracadabra, the Magic of Judaism”
Sunday, September 12 at 1:00 p.m. via Zoom

This award-winning presentation examines the history and significant contributions of Jewish magicians of the 19th and 20th centuries. It is sure to be a magical, colorful and engaging talk by guest speaker Gregg Philipson. Contact Simon Wellner at syme9876@yahoo.com to RSVP and for Zoom details.

All Act 2 event ideas are welcome!  Have an idea? Please contact Michelle Feibus at michellefeibus@gmail.com, 512-585-1122.
