Beth David will hold the last of its Luncheon Speaker series of the season on Saturday, June 10, with Dr. Benjamin Kaplan speaking on “From the parasha to Participation: Finding Community in Binghamton.” He will link that Saturday’s Torah reading to his experiences living in Binghamton during the completion of his medical training. The luncheon will take place after Shabbat morning services, which begin at 9:30 am, and is open to the community. There is no charge for the luncheon.
“We look forward to having community members join us,” organizers say, “for what promises to be an inspiring talk coupled with a delicious luncheon enjoyed together, as we wish Ben and his family much success in the next chapter of their lives!”
Since the monthly series’ continuation depends on the generosity of contributors, Beth David welcomes and appreciates donations to the Luncheon Fund in order to keep the program going. Donations, as well as sponsorships, can be made in honor of or in memory of someone, or to mark a special occasion. Those wishing an acknowledgment to be sent to the person being honored, or to the family of someone being remembered, can indicate that along with the necessary information. Donations can be sent to Beth David Synagogue, 39 Riverside Dr., Binghamton, NY 13905, Attention: Luncheon Fund.
