West Suburban Temple Har Zion
River Forest, Illinois
USCJ 2016 Scholar in Residence, Rabbi Ebstein will discuss Holy Time (Shabbat) vs Holy Space (Israel). Using passages from Abraham Joshua Heschel’s 2 great books, The Sabbath and Israel: An Echo of Eternity, Rabbi Ebstein will discuss these two
seemingly unrelated topics; guests will learn which Heschel believes to be the more important one.
Originally from the south side of Chicago, Rabbi Ebstein grew up in Highland Park, where he and his family were members of North Suburban Synagogue Beth El. After serving as the first full-time rabbi for a congregation in Herndon, Virginia for 7 years, David and his family fulfilled a lifelong dream of making aliyah. David spent 10 years working in Jewish education and 2 years at the Yad Vashem International School for Holocaust Studies where he developed an expertise in Holocaust Education.
Breakfast ($10.00 donation) will be served at 10:15 prior to the lecture.
Transportation is available. Contact the temple office at 708.366.9000 or email@example.com to RSVP and/or request a ride.
