Shabbat Lunch & Learn

Saturday, February 24, at 12:30pm, following Kiddush after services
Torah in the Trenches: The Rabbi Chaplains of WWII with Rabbi Daniel Bronstein. Join Hunter College historian professor, and Kane Street community member, Rabbi Daniel Bronstein to learn the story of how hundreds of American rabbis (Conservative, Reform and Orthodox) put aside fundamental ideological and ritual differences in order to serve the religious and cultural needs of the more than half a million Jews then serving in armed forces. Although the fragmented structure of American Jewish life has long been a defining characteristic of the American Jewish experience, the story of the Rabbi Chaplains of World War II reflects how there is also a long history of intra-Jewish or interdenominational cooperation.
