CARLOS CORTÉS PRESENTS:

“A Conversation with Alana”

Thursday, January 11, 7 PM
at Temple Beth El

"A Conversation with Alana" is a one-hour, one-person autobiographical play written and performed by Carlos E. Cortés, Professor Emeritus of History at the University of California, Riverside. In his play, Cortés presents his story of growing up as a young man of mixed ancestry in racially segregated, religiously divided early post-World War II Kansas City, Missouri. The son of a Mexican Catholic immigrant father and an American-born Jewish mother, whose parents came from Austria and Ukraine, Cortés had to learn to navigate Kansas City's rigid racial, ethnic, and religious fault lines, while simultaneously dealing with the internal conflicts of his own divided family.

KABBALAH

Taught by Rabbi Zev-Hayyim Feyer

3 Classes on Sundays, 2 - 4 pm
February 4, 11, 18

These classes will focus on The Zohar is the central document of the Jewish mystical tradition. It is traditionally ascribed to Rabbi Simeon bar Yohai, a sage of the second century CE, but it was not revealed in writing until the Spanish Rabbi Moshe de Leon transcribed it in the thirteenth century. In this series, we will review the significance of the Zohar, both traditionally and for modern Judaism, and we will examine selected passages from the Zohar, especially those Zoharic passages that have found their way into the Siddur (prayer book).
