Join us at the musical Wonderful Town, based on the hit play and film My Sister Eileen. Sisters from Ohio, one an aspiring writer and the other an actress and dancer are newly arrived in New York City. Pursuing their dreams, they deal with broken hearts (this IS a musical) and surround themselves with a cast of characters.
We’ll have time for a quick bite and discussion at the Dean Dinning Hall before the Interfaith Service.

Kibbud Av V’em: (Honoring Parents) is Rarely as Simple as It Sounds
The mitzvah to honor parents is one of the “Top Ten,” but it is far from cut-and-dry. The sages tell us what constitutes “honor”, but they also delve into the messier situations of life when our sense of “honoring” clashes with that of our parents, and how to fulfill our obligation when our parents are especially “challenging”.
