The synagogue calendar for March is packed with exciting services, programs and celebrations. I hope you will join us for one or all of these top-notch events. I want to highlight three of them:
March 12 at 7:30 p.m. I have been invited to speak at St. Lawrence Martyr Church
in South Redondo Beach. My topic is Jews and Catholics in the Modern Age. My presentation will trace twenty centuries of often bitter Jewish-Catholic relationships and then highlight the new direction with Vatican II, set into motion by Pope John XXIII following WWII.
I will present the same lecture on March 12th at 11:00 a.m. to our Rosenberg Cultural Center.
Sunday, March 16 - Purim Megillah Reading and Carnival
Join us at 10:00 a.m. Sunday morning for a Megillah reading with the Religious School community.
Monday, March 24 - 7:15pm THE ETHICS OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENT:
A PANEL DISCUSSION featuring; Professor Erwin Chemerinsky, Professor Aryeh Cohen and Martin J. Mayer, Esq.

Finally, this Erev Shabbat at 6:30 pm is Tot Shabbat featuring the Tuvia Kindergarten and our Bat Mitzvah, Olivia Moss. The service will be preceded at 5:45 p.m. by a kid-friendly catered dinner and craft. Please RSVP to email@example.com. Afterwards, stay for a dessert oneg and Israeli dancing. Shabbat morning Rabbi Gila Katz will lead the Parashat Ha Shavuah class at 9:00 a.m. Olivia Moss, daughter of Cory and Pat Moss, will be called to the Torah at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning. A festive kiddush lunch in her honor will follow the service.
Reminder; Day light savings begins Sunday morning at 2 am.
