Breakfast with the Rabbi

Ageless Wisdom: Lifetime Lessons from the Bible
April 23, 9:30 AM

You are invited to Breakfast with the Rabbi on April 23 at 9:30 AM.  We will welcome Rabbi Brooks Susman and Dr. Chris Bellitto as they inspire us with ‘Ageless Wisdom: Lifetime Lessons from the Bible.”

What lessons might we learn about wisdom and growing older from the Bible? Is it true that wisdom comes with age or can we learn about wisdom from young people, too? Join us as we draw lessons from famous (and not so famous) Biblical stories to learn how to gather wisdom and appreciate her gifts of blessings and burdens, patience and laughter, and reaping and sowing. Join us as Christopher Bellitto of Kean University talks about his new book in a discussion led by Rabbi Brooks Susman.

There is no charge and all are welcome.
