Let's Laugh Together! Israel Through the Eyes of Comedian Benji Lovitt Thursday, August 6 - 7 PM
Since making aliyah in 2006, comedian, educator, and Dallas native Benji Lovitt has performed for audiences around the world, including Hillels, Birthright Israel, Jewish Federations, JCCs, Masa Israel Journey, and more. His perspectives on Israel have been featured on TV and radio and in publications such as USA Today, Time Magazine, The Atlantic, BBC Radio, the Times of Israel, and more. During 2014's Operation Protective Edge, his humorous observations on the war led to his being called in Israel "the only reason to go on Facebook." His annual Yom Ha'atzmaut list of things he loves about Israel developed a huge following and he works regularly with Jewish organizations to promote Israel.
Sponsored in conjunction with the Southwest Jewish Congress, Hadassah, and Texans for a Safe Israel.
See the Minyan page for the weekday Torah readings, chanted by Hazzan Weber.
"Every assembly whose purpose is to serve God will in the end be established" (Pirkei Avot 4:14)
Our synagogue is dedicated to warm, personal and moving worship, as well as innovative and integrative educational classes and activities for both adults and children.
We further are committed to integrating all of our members into a warm and caring community based around the philosophy of "all Israel (in this case our community) being responsible one for each other." (Babylonian Talmud, Shavuot 39a)
I have no doubt that you will quickly feel at home within our social, religious, educational and communal activities. — Rabbi Andrew Bloom
