Arthur Moses Presents Harry Houdini - Sunday, March 14, 7 PM
Harry Houdini became famous for his magic and stage illusions: making an elephant vanish, walking through a brick wall, metamorphosis substitution, escaping from a milk can, and the famous water torture cell. He was fearless in accepting the unknown and unwavering in his own belief to overcome challenges.
On Sunday, March 14, we will be treated to an exclusive personal video tour of Arthur Moses's collection of more than 6,000 items of Houdini memorabilia. From straitjackets and handcuffs to photographs and rare posters, some of these items have been displayed at museums all over the country.
Arthur is the author of several books: Houdini Speaks Out, Houdini Periodical Bibliography References From 1898 – 2015, and Harry Houdini & Sherlock Holmes Together Again in 1908. He has also written more than two dozen articles published in magic magazines and journals and was featured in 2013 on the Canadian television program Extreme Collectors. He will share his passion and regale us with stories of this larger-than-life Jewish personality. Stay tuned for Zoom registration in the weekly CAS emails.

Wanted: Webinar Host Team Volunteers
The High Holy Days showed us how well webinars can work. But they require behind-the-scenes volunteers to operate the computer which controls the camera feeds. If you would be interested in being trained and helping in this vital service, please contact Steve Gratch or Pattie Wood.
"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)
