Upcoming Salon events:

Wednesday February 3  ~ A Higher Light; Hasidic and Kabbalistic Insights into the Jewish Holidays with Rabbi Larry Tabick
The New London Synagogue celebrates the launch of A Higher Light; Hasidic and Kabbalistic Insights into the Jewish Holidays with its author Rabbi Larry Tabick who will be in conversation with his son, Rabbi Roni Tabick (rabbi of New Stoke Newington Masorti). Rabbi Tabick (the father) is emeritus rabbi of Mekor Hayim (former Shir Hayim) Reform Jewish Community. A Higher Light is a collection of extracts from scores of the most important Jewish mystical texts, arranged by festive occasion. He’ll share what led him to write the book and some insights from it.

Wednesday 10 February ~ Who Wrote the Bible?, with Richard Elliot Friedman (University of Georgia)
For a Synagogue founded in an argument about who wrote the Bible, it’s not, actually, a subject we spend much time discussing. If our most sacred text is not the result of perfect dictation, from God to Moses, then how did the Torah come to be? Who wrote the Bible?

Who Wrote the Bible? is also the title of Professor Richard Elliot Friedman’s most famous book. It charts not only the history of academic Biblical study, but also Friedman’s own theory forged over decades of literary and philological engagement. He’s a terrific presenter and it’s a privilege for us to welcome him to our Salon.
