"Resistance is the Lesson" luncheon and talk not accepting reservations

Catered luncheon on Saturday, 11/17/2018, starting at 12:30 p.m. in CBH Social Hall. Thank you for your interest, but reservations for this event are CLOSED.

Lawrence Bush, writer, editor, and longtime editor of Jewish Currents will give a talk on "Resistance is the Lesson." This is based on the exhibition of posters describing varied acts of resistance against Nazis. It includes descriptions of numerous well-known and little-known heroes and heroines of the Jewish resistance throughout the lands of Europe. Also included is a special section on Righteous Gentiles who risked their lives to help Jews.

The luncheon will be catered by Solomon's Deli, with a tempting selection of Fall salads and roasted vegetables with a sweet treat to complete.  Advance lunch reservations are requested by Friday, November 9th. An $18 per lunch donation is suggested to offset the costs of the catered meal and to ensure that the experience will be accessible to all in our community regardless of their ability to pay.

Thank you for your interest! If you have questions about your payment, please contact Congregation Bet Haverim at 530-758-0842; if you have questions about the program, please contact Vera Sandronsky at .
