Hadassah Lunch & Learn

Thursday, April 11, 12:00pm

Many of us think of Judaism as an entirely rational religion.Yet superstition and magical practices have always been a part of Jewish life. The pages of the Talmud are filled with stories of demons, mischievous spirits, and protective charms. And many of today's life-cycle customs and rituals actually have their origin in magical thought and superstitious belief. Join guest speaker Rabbi Finestone as we discuss and share this most colorful side of our people's history and practice through the centuries. RSVP by Monday, April 8.
