Join us as we welcome Rabbi Julie Greenberg back from sabbatical.  On Sunday
August 23, 2020 from noon to 1:15 PM, Rabbi Julie will lead us in a discussion on Zoom of our summer reading Joseph and the Way of Forgiveness by Stephen Mitchell.

In Joseph and the Way of Forgiveness, Mitchell takes the ancient biblical story of Joseph, which is the longest narrative in the Torah, and finds profound meaning for today.  Tolstoy called Joseph's journey"the most beautiful story in the world."  One critic described Mitchell's book as "a unique and special kind of masterpiece.”   Mitchell’s retelling, coming from the perspective of a renowned teacher of mindfulness,will surprise us with new understanding of our ancestors and of our choices today.  The book reads as a novel so if you like novels, this one promises to be engaging, innovative and illuminating.
