TO LIFE…Secrets of the AJA


 

Sunday January 24th, 2021  @ 10am via Zoom

 

Larchmont Temple Brotherhood Breakfast is honored to welcome Rabbi Juan Mejia 

 

Rabbi Juan Mejía was born in Bogotá, Colombia. Having grown up Catholic in Colombia, his Jewish journey began when he discovered his family's pre-Inquisition Jewish roots. After discovering the Jewish roots of his family, he embarked on a spiritual journey that lead him back to the religion and the people of his ancestors. He holds an undergraduate degree in Philosophy from the National University of Colombia and a summa cum laude Masters Degree in Jewish Civilization from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He received rabbinic ordination from the Rabbinical School of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in NY.

Juan Mejia has been a "digital rabbi" for the past 10 years. Eventually, after he officially converted to Judaism, he was ordained as a rabbi through the Conservative movement, and began working—via the internet and in Spanish—with Latin Americans, some with Jewish roots and some without, who wanted to become Jewish.

Who could possibly be better, then, to talk with about the opportunities and the limitations of Judaism on the web as we enter this period of "social distancing?”

Rabbi Mejia will speak about his journey from Columbian alter boy to Rabbi in Oklahoma, as well as Emergent Communities in Latin America, and the rise of Opt-in Judaism in a globalized world.


 

Sunday, December 6th  @ 10am

 

Guest speaker Congressman-elect Jamaal Bowman

 


Jamaal Bowman is an award-winning Bronx middle school principal living in Yonkers. He was raised in public housing in New York City and has been an educator in public schools for the past twenty years. As principal, Bowman created health clinics, afterschool programs to keep kids safe from gun violence, and helped low-income students get to some of the best colleges in the country. Bowman has already delivered results for thousands of families in our district and now he wants to make sure every child in the district has the same opportunities he did.

Jamaal was born and raised in New York City.  He spent his early years in public housing and later in rent-controlled apartments. He didn’t have much growing up, but his mother provided him all that he needed: love, a stable family, and a sense of community. Jamaal now lives in Yonkers with his wife and three kids, and he works as the founding principal of one of the best public middle schools in the city.

"The Story of America in 7 Books"

Josephe Luzzi - Bard College

Joseph Luzzi is a Literature and Italian Professor at Bard College, and was previously a Visiting Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, where he received the Scaglione Prize for his teaching. He is also the author of the audio course, “The Art of Reading.” Professor Luzzi previously taught at Yale University, where he was awarded a Yale College Teaching Prize
In 1869, as our nation was recovering from the devastations of the Civil War, the critic John William DeForest described the quest for "the Great American Novel," suggesting how difficult it was to capture the complexity and diversity of the American experience in a single book. The past century and a half has seen many remarkable attempts by a wide range of authors to meet this challenge and distill the essence of U.S. history into the pages of unforgettable writing.
In this brand new course, we will explore those 7 books that best represent this quest to tell the American story, answering such questions as: What does it mean to be "American"? What are the books that have had the greatest impact on U.S. history and culture? How can fiction illuminate the hard truths of American life? This presentation will lead audiences through the fascinating world of American literature, as we explore how masterpieces ranging from Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn and William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury to Toni Morrison's Beloved, Joseph Heller's Catch-22, and Philip Roth's American Pastoral, and more, reveal the characters and conflicts of the American spirit.

 


 

About Larchmont Temple Brotherhood

The LT Brotherhood originally formed in 1948 – the same year as Larchmont Temple and of course, the State of Israel. Our membership is comprised of women and men who want to support our mission of Educating, Entertaining, and Inspiring the LT Community. We develop and sponsor community-building events that support Judaism and Jewish life through a stimulating and varied lecture series, an annual blood drive, our Yom Hashoah Candle Program, and partnering with the School and Youth Boards. LTB is a member of the North American Federation of Temple Brotherhoods, a coalition of over 250 affiliated brotherhoods with 25,000 members across North America, dedicated to tikkun olam "repairing the world" through the practice of Brotherhood. LTB is also a member of the Men of Reform Judaism (MRJ)

Brotherhood invites any Temple member interested in learning more about what we do to attend a Brotherhood Board Meeting. They are usually held on the first Monday of the Month at 7:30 pm.  Anyone interested in slicing bagels for a breakfast or assembling boxes for Yom Hashoah Candles or helping out at a blood drive, please let us know.

To help members new to the Temple Community, we provide Brotherhood memberships free of charge for First-Year Temple Members. For more information or to get involved, contact brotherhood@larchmonttemple.org.
