Lunch & Learn with Rabbi Jodie Gordon
What’s modern about Yiddish short stories? Join Rabbi Gordon for a close look at the works of three influential writers: S.Y. Abramovitch (Mendele Moykher Seforim), Y.L. Peretz, and Sholom Aleichem. Our conversations will be enriched by your participation, so please do read the stories in advance of each session. All stories are available by email or in printed copies in the Hevreh lobby. Please bring your lunch. Please email Rabbi Gordon at
