All are invited to Rabbi Charles Kroloff’s Lunch & Learn for a lively discussion on What Does It Mean to Say: “I am Jewish” Past, Present, and Future?, at Temple Emanu-El (756 East Broad Street, Westfield) on Monday, Nov. 7, 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Rabbi Kroloff will explore how ideas about Jewish identity change dramatically from Biblical times, to the rabbis of the Talmud, to Ashkenazic and Sephardic great-grandparents to the present, and...how about grandchildren and beyond?

A complimentary lunch will be offered. There is no charge to attend.

Lunch & Learn is supported by the Rabbi Kroloff Fund for Jewish Learning, to which donations are appreciated. Temple Emanu-El is located at 756 East Broad Street in Westfield.
