This month the Interest Group will
be hosting special guest, Rabbi Nir
Barkin. Rabbi Barkin is a rabbi of
Congregation YOZMA in Modi’in,
Israel. In 2007 Congregation YOZMA
literally made groundbreaking
history when it became the first non-
synagogue in the history of the
State of Israel.
As a representative of the rapidly
growing progressive Jewish
community in Israel, Rabbi Barkin
will be addressing the changes
taking place in Israeli society
towards a more liberal entity.
Through his personal family path
(which goes back 5 generations in
Israel), he will help us understand
the evolution of a progressive
religious voice in a nation that is
dominated by orthodoxy.
Come early for coffee and bagels
and bring a friend.
