Sun, May 12, 2 PM: CITY SHUL THEATRE DATE: Becoming Dr. Ruth at the Harold Green Theatre - She's America's favourite sex therapist! But before she became Dr. Ruth, Karola Siegel had to flee Germany in the Kindertransport, become a sniper in Jerusalem and survive as a single mother in America. Filled with humour and honesty, this play is a triumphant and life-affirming story of a woman who found her own unique place in the world. Talk-back by Rabbi Goldstein. Tickets $60/ person. Register here.

 

Mon, May 13: Interfaith Iftar at The Dawah Centre. Join City Shul and St. Anne's to participate in the meal breaking the Ramadan fast, along with teaching by Rabbi Goldstein, Rev Van Der Meer and Imam Ally on "The Role of Scripture in My Tradition." Limited to 15 members only, free. RSVP here.

 

Thur, May 16, 7:30 PM at The Wolfond Centre: Female Rabbis: Agents of Change/ Preservers of Tradition. Female Rabbis generally live the paradox of being agents of change whose job is to teach an unchanging text. They are expected to preserve an ancient tradition which sometimes feels like it has not room for their own female perspective. This panel of five path-breaking female Rabbis: Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist, and the first Orthodox ordained woman to use the title Rabbi, plus the moderator who has forged her Rabbinic path non-denominationally - will share insights, experiences, and questions for people of all religions. Free and all welcome. With Rabbis: Elyse Goldstein, Lila Kagedin, Tina Grimberg and Jennifer Gorman. Moderated by Rabbi Julia Appel.

 

Sun, May 26, 7 PM: Holocaust Education Week talk  An evening of films and discussion with filmmaker and City Shul member Naomi Wise, Director of the March of the Living Digital Archive. She has been making films and documenting Holocaust survivor's stories since 1996, and will screen some of her work and talk about the March of the Living program and the archive project. Register here.

 

Sun, June 16, 3:15 PM: Torah Stitch by Stitch at the Textile Museum. For a private tour of the unique installation of the project created by Toronto's own Temma Gentles. In the words of The Textile Museum, "Tapestry of Spirit" presents the ambitious and inclusive social project to cross-stitch the first five books of the Bible, as well as selections from the Scriptures and Qur'an, reflecting on the theme of creation. It is an immersive installation that has been collectively created by almost 1500 volunteers of many faiths. We will journey through nearly 1000 panels in three languages (Hebrew, Greek and Arabic) including illuminations and embellishments by stitchers from 28 countries who have interpreted these ancient narratives into contemplative, often highly personal expressions. The award-winning documentary short film Stitchers: Tapestry of Spirit (directed by Tassie Notar and produced by 90th Parallel) will play throughout the exhibition. Several City Shul'ers (including our Rabbi!) were involved in this project including stitching, proofreading, designing and sitting on the Board of the project, and they will have special stories to share during our visit. We will meet outside The Textile Museum (55 Centre Avenue) at 3:15. Please be prompt. Adults: $17, Seniors: $12. Register and pay here.
