Etz Chaim's Rabbi Caminker to teach winter course on Judaism & contemporary issues

Rabbi Harold F. Caminker, D.D., the spiritual leader of Congregation Etz Chaim, will conduct a course, "Judaism Confronts Contemporary Issues," on Monday nights, from 7:30 to 9 p.m., between January 14 and February 25.  The course addresses the pressing issues of modern life as they impinge upon Jews and Judaism in a broad perspective.  It will discuss the attitudes of Orthodox or Halachic Judaism, along with Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist Judaism, as they wrestle with some of the most challenging ethical issues of our time: abortion, artificial insemination, drugs, euthanasia (mercy killing), homosexuality, organ transplant, and suicide.  Study materials will be distributed one week prior to each session.

"Judaism Confronts Contemporary Issues" will be held at the Synagogue, 1881 N.E. 26 Street, in Wilton Manors.  Contact Cong. Etz Chaim at 954-564-9232 and ask for a registration form for the course.  Please sign up no later than January 3, in order to allow for preparation of materials.  The cost for Synagogue members is $50.00 per person or $75.00 for a couple, and for non-members $100.00 per person.
