A weekend with Rabbi Jane Litman

Rabbi Jane Litman, Western Regional director for the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation will visit Chavurah B’Yachad on April 27th and 28th.

Rabbi Jane Litman

Rabbi Litman will lead our Shabbat services at the Pepper Chapel on Friday night, the 27th  (potluck dinner at 6:00; services at 7:30).  And on Saturday morning, the 28th, she will lead a Torah study session at the home of Sharon and Harvey Rishe (potluck brunch and discussion, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.; 1741 E. Mill Lane).

On Saturday night, we will take advantage of Rabbi Litman’s skills as a teacher and scholar of modern Jewish history. That’s the night of the performance of Bloch’s Sacred Service by the Salt Lake Choral Artists.  Composed in 1931, this Hebrew oratorio is one of the great pieces of 20th Century Jewish classical music, and we are thrilled to have the chance to hear it in Salt Lake City.  Cantor Larry Loeb from Kol Ami will be one of the soloists. In the afternoon, Rabbi Litman will speak about “Bloch and his Era” connecting the dots between cultural and social changes in Jewish and other sacred music.  This rich discussion will take place at the home of Joyce and Jack Dolcourt (509 Northmont Way), from 4:30 to 6:30, including a potluck supper.  We’ve scheduled this early so we have time to get to Libby Gardner Hall in time for the concert at 7:30.
