6:30 pm Erev Shabbat Service
7:45 pm Chocolate Oneg and Speaker, Rabbi Deborah Prinz
Based on her book, On the Chocolate Trail, published in 2013, Rabbi Prinz lectures about chocolate and religion around the world, stirring up age-old passions for chocolate and religion using information gathered from travel in several countries, including Belgium, England, France, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States. The project spans several cultures, centuries, and religions, exploring how faith traditions share consumption, ritual, and business interests in chocolate.
Besides being a published author, Rabbi Prinz spent thirty years as a congregational rabbi and held many leadership offices in both the local and national communities.
Her book will be available for purchase. There is no charge for this event. Co-sponsored by Beth El Women. Help us plan for a great event (we don't want to run out of chocolate!)
