Spring Jewish Lecture Series: Prof. Deena Aranoff
Thursday, May 2, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
For many Jews, Shabbat is the most central aspect of traditional Jewish life. Join us as we explore the basics of Shabbat, its symbolism, and how it stands on the four pillars of remembrance, restraint, dignity and delight.
