Here I Am by Jonathan Safran Foer, discussion led by Rabbi Bill Kuhn
Open to all members and prospective members, ReadRS is an opportunity to connect with each other and share ideas through lively discussions of books over wine, cheese, and other nibbles.  Join in and help us select books of  interest you would like to read -- fiction or non-fiction, serious or humorous, controversial or not -- that not only provide "a good read" but also help us explore the meaning and experience of being Jewish, past or  present, in America and around the world. 
Chairs: Carole Wilder ([email protected]) & Ben Zion Friedman ([email protected])
Bring: A snack or beverage to share.

Help us connect with every member household
Join the ConnectRS team and help us do a mitzvah!  We're looking for congregants to give us an hour or two of time (or as long as you can), to bring your cell phone and make phone calls to current RS members. We call every member household to wish them a Happy Passover on behalf of RS and check in. No soliciting - no big commitment - just friends, fun and food (lunch will be provided).  Many ConnectRS have come back each year to help us make calls because it feels good to connect with other members and do this important outreach work on behalf of RS.
Co-chaired by Linda Karp Rudow & Cheryl Dougherty. With special thanks to Mary Ellen Schneider for all her help.
