Judaism through Reconstructionist lens
Rabbi Nancy Fuchs Kreimer will lead a weekend of adult education at Congregation Dor Hadash from Nov. 12 to 14.
The weekend, which will begin with a Friday evening service at 7:30 p.m., will continue with two learning sessions on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.
Fuchs Kreimer is a senior faculty member at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in suburban Philadelphia. She also writes on the religion page of the Huffington Post Blog, and is the creator of the RRC’s distance learning program entitled Judaism through a Reconstructionist Lens.
The weekend will be built around the fundamental concepts of believing, behaving and belonging, which are central tenets of Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of the Reconstructionist movement.
A session for teenagers of Jewish and Muslim backgrounds will be included late Saturday afternoon.
There is a fee for the weekend program, which is open to the public, though there is no charge for Dor Hadash and Tree of Life/Or L’Simcha members. The entire weekend will take place at the Tree of Life Synagogue at the corner of Wilkins and Shady avenues, Squirrel Hill.
