Pride Shabbat Dinner and Discussion

We celebrate the strides we have made and recognize the distance we still have to go in our fight for LGBTQ rights.
In this year's program, we discuss the Prayer For The End Of Hiding that CBH says at the end of our services, and what it's meaning is for us yesterday, today, and tomorrow. 

Dinner is an array of salads made by a Syrian refugee who is building a new life here in Atlanta with her family. The food is absolutely delish!

The annual event commemorates the Stonewall Uprising.

Black Lives Matter

For our monthly adult learning in April, the Black Lives Matter affinity group at CBH will be hosting a panel of teenage activists (including our own Maddy Laing) to speak about what the movement for Black Lives looks like for young people, and how we can support them in their work. We will be joined by Mary Hooks, Co-Director of Southerners on New Ground and organizer with Black Lives Matter Atlanta. 

Does Black Lives Matter bring up questions for you?  Do you have a young person in your life whose ideas on the subject seem radical - or do you wonder what the younger generation is doing, thinking, and seeing? Bring your questions, bring your friends, and bring your children ages 10 and up for an eye-opening conversation.  Light snacks will be provided.  For questions please contact Beth-Ann Buitekant @ 404-455-8746.Join us for a program brought to us by our Black Lives Matter group.

Genesis: From Adam to Abraham: The First 20  Generations
Thursdays, 6:30pm starting April 12 (5 sessions) at CBH

From the creation of the world to the biblical flood that nearly destroyed it, the Book of Genesis chronicles stories of family and faith, honor and dishonor,  passion and power.  How was Abraham able to pick up and leave everything he knew?  And how did the awesome teamwork creating  the Tower of Babel go so terribly wrong? In partnership with the Lisa Brill Institute for Jewish Learning.

Ancient Wisdom for Modern Families
Taught by Rabbi Ruth Abusch-Madger

Ancient Jewish wisdom can help us navigate the ups and downs of modern parenting. Beyond Facebook, does a promised land of family life even exist? What can we do when our tempers get the best of us? In a world of plenty, how can we and our children focus on what is most important? Join us for conversations that look at biblical stories and rabbinic wisdom to help us unpack our own experiences as parents.

Ruth Abusch-Magder earned a doctorate by studying domestic Jewish life but also earned her credibility in the motherhood trenches where together with her husband she is raising two kids and has parented on three continents.

$100 per person or $175 per couple
