SCHOLAR-IN-RESIDENCE

Rabbi Marc Rosenstein, Scholar in Residence at Northern Hills Synagogue on February 18-20, 2017.January 27-29, 2017, Northern Hills Synagogue was honored to host as our Scholar in Residence Rabbi Dr. Marc Rosenstein, Emeritus Director of the Galilee Foundation for Value Education. (http://eng.makom-bagalil.org.il/x4e/). Among his many educational contributions, his most famous is the creation of the Galilee Circus in which young Jews and Arabs come together to learn, practice, and perform circus arts whilst breaking down the barriers which normally keep these groups apart.

 

As Scholar in Residence, Rabbi Rosenstein led services on Friday night and spoke about "Dissent and Division in the Jewish People Throughout History." On Saturday morning, he presented the D’var Torah on "Though He Tarry: the Messiah and Messianism as a Force in Jewish History." On Saturday evening, after Havdallah and a dessert Oneg, he presented a program about the Galilee Circus that was co-sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati as part of their "Israelity" series. At Sunday morning brunch, he spoke about ways to overcome problems between teachers and parents. We were excited to welcome Rabbi Rosenstein and to study and discuss with him contemporary issues in Judaism and the state of Israel.

Northern Hills Synagogue's ability to provide family education programming has been supported by a grant from SEED (Synagogue Education Excellence Directive) of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati.
