“Our Ancestors, They Call to US:” A conversation with Rabbi Isaiah Rothstein

December 7, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


We welcome back (virtually) Rabbi Isaiah Rothstein, Rabbinic Scholar and Public Affairs Advisor at the Jewish Federations of North America. Rabbi Rothstein visited our community earlier this Fall when he came to honor ancestors at the 57th anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing. Rabbi Rothstein was raised in a multi-racial Orthodox family in Monsey, NY and will engage us in story and song around his trip to Alabama. This event is part of Temple Beth El’s Tirdof Series, focused on Civil Rights Past and Present, and is held in partnership with the Birmingham JCRC.

We’ve heard many of you express a desire for social connection and are expanding our virtual programming to include small group discussions. On select programs, we’ll invite you to stay on the Zoom immediately following, for 15-20 minutes of discussion and kibitzing in small group break out rooms. Think of this as the time after the program where you’d usually linger and chat!
