Wednesday Schmoozes

Corey Stone
Corey Stone

On December 2, Corey Stone, who was part of the executive team at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, will discuss issues of debt, debt forgiveness, bankruptcy and finance through the lens of Jewish texts.

On December 23, it’s a film schmooze:  watching the short film “Commandment 613” and discussing it with the film maker and its subject, Rabbi Kevin Hale, who restores Torah scrolls saved during the Holocaust.

On December 30, Anthony Mordechai Tzvi Russell will return to BEKI, adding his voice to BEKI’s ongoing exploration of issues of racial justice.  He will demonstrate—through song and discussion—convergences of Ashkenazi and African American music.  A classically trained operatic bass, he now specializes in Yiddish and liturgical music.

From 8 to 9 pm on Zoom, BEKI Schmoozes include a presentation and time for questions.  To request the link, email office@beki.org.
