Scholar in Residence Shabbat Dinner with Maggie Anton

Fri, 5 May, 2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

We welcome Maggie Anton to Beth El Congregation as our Scholar-in-Residence on May 5, 6, and 7, 2017. Maggie Anton is the award-winning author of the historical fiction trilogy, Rashi’s Daughters and new series, Rav Hisda’s Daughter.  A Los Angeles native, Maggie did not know much about Judaism until she married; she and her husband learned about Judaism as adults. That was the start of a lifetime of Jewish education, synagogue involvement, and ritual observance. Her newest work is the non-fiction Fifty Shades of Talmud: What the First Rabbis Had to Say about You-Know-What.

6:00 p.m. Kabbalat Service, 7:00 p.m. dinner following Kabbalat Shabbat services

Join Beth El for a traditional Shabbat dinner. Maggie Anton will present the D’var Torah and continue the discussion after Shabbat dinner. Learn how Ms. Anton started studying Talmud and what led to her becoming an author.  What is Talmud? Why do its Rabbis have so much to say about sex?!
