This month we will introduce the very unique “TIS Health and Wellness Project,” a newly-created, year-long drive to help members live optimally healthy lives by understanding the Torah’s views on exercise, diet, and happiness. Dr. Michael Mantell will be our featured speaker.

Keeping ourselves healthy is a spiritual mandate in that it allows us to wholeheartedly fulfill the mitzvot, as Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch noted in his The Nineteen Letters, “Respect your own body as the receptacle, the messenger, and instrument of the spirit.”

Join us for a healthy lunch and kick off your commitment to a healthier, happier and fitter life in the coming year…through the lens of Torah.

Our Kiddush Luncheon is being hosted by Amy Wagreich and Martin Marcus in honor of Rebecca’s graduation from American Jewish University with a Masters degree in Jewish Communal Service.

Child care will be available beginning at 10:30 a.m. and throughout the learning session.

If you are interested in sponsoring a Midrash Shabbat Kiddush lunch, please speak with Norm Katz or Rabbi Rosenthal.
