A Special Program featuring US Representative Les AuCoin @ Congregation Neveh Shalom

A Special Program featuring US Representative Les AuCoin, Tuesday, January 28, 7:00pm

Join us for an evening with Congressman Les AuCoin as he shares the remarkable inside story of how he, his college-aged daughter Stacy, and Dr. Raisa Premsyler of Neveh Shalom beat the Anti-Semite Soviets in the late ‘80s to win freedom for the family of Naum Chernobelsky, Raisa’s brother, a Russian Refusenik. Our program is adapted from a chapter in Congressman AuCoin’s new memoir, Catch and Release: An Oregon Life in Politics. All three individuals will participate in this program.

About Congressman AuCoin:

In 1974, Les AuCoin became the first Democrat to win a US House seat in Oregon’s First District. He was one of the post-Watergate reformers who shook up an insular, autocratic Congress, leading fights for affordable housing, “trickle-up” economics, wilderness protection, abortion rights, and nuclear arms control. AuCoin has said that freeing the Chernobelskys was one of the most important achievements of his 18-year career in the US House.

Sex, Beauty, War and Despair: Adult Themes in the Five Megillot with Rabbi Kosak @ Congregation Neveh Shalom
Feb 2 @ 9:45 am – 11:15 am

Sex, Beauty, War and Despair: Adult Themes in the Five Megillot with Rabbi Kosak

Sunday, February 2 – June 21, 9:45-11:15am, (12 weeks total; full schedule available with registration)

The five megillot are some of the enduring classics of world literature. Jews read these scrolls publicly on holidays throughout the year, but without the regularity with which we read the Torah. As a consequence, these important sections of the Bible are less familiar to the average synagogue goer. In this course, we will have an opportunity to examine the megillot, their deeply human themes, and the light they can shed on our own lives.

Cost: $36 ($72 for non-members).
