The Centennial Fall Lecture Series: Conversations with Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg

Wednesdays, October 20-November 10
During his tenure as Beth Tfiloh’s leader for the past 43 years, Rabbi Wohlberg focused much of his efforts on four subjects dear to his heart and the role of Judaism in the 21st century. Join us in four educational and entertaining evenings for a discussion on politics, Beth Tfiloh and the American Jewish community, Black/white relations, and the state of Israel. Each event will feature comments by our guest speaker, followed by a dialogue with Rabbi Wohlberg. Questions will be welcomed from the in-person audience.
