October 27-29, Parashat Lech Lecha:

BEKI, B’nai Jacob, and the Westville Synagogue will again sponsor a Scholar-in-Residence weekend, featuring Noam Zion a senior research fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute. We plan to have a catered Shabbat dinner at Westville (by reservation), followed by an address from Mr. Zion. He will speak again on Shabbat following a kiddush luncheon at BEKI, as well as Sunday morning at B’nai Jacob in Woodbridge. Anyone interested in helping to plan this exciting event or to help sponsor it should please contact Barbara Zalesch.
