Shabbat & Cultural Program

JEWS AND BOOZE: From Noah to Baron Rothschild, Samuel Bronfman and Beyond

Consumption of wine is embedded in Jewish culture from the very beginning.  In modern times, Jews have played an 
important role – legally and illegally – in the production and purveyance of liquor.  In this final talk before 
he retires, Rabbi Peter will trace our long-time relationship with alcohol.  Has it been a good thing or a bad 
thing for the Jews?  

In honor of the topic and occasion, we’ll have some schnapps available for tasting!   
Please remember to bring a pot-luck dessert.
