“Death Comes For The Rabbi – An Afternoon of Listening and Learning”
KAM Isaiah Israel Congregation
1100 East Hyde Park Boulevard
Chicago, IL 60615-2810
Come and participate in an unprecedented event combining music and Jewish text study. In a trans-denominational Community Beit Midrash (Study Hall), with Reconstructionist, Reform, Orthodox and Conservative teachers, we will encounter Yehoshua ben Levi, the rabbi who became dead without dying. We will experience Rabbi Yehoshua’s struggle with the Angel of Death both through a Talmudic text (Ketubot 77b) and through a live performance, by the Millennium Chamber Players, of “Floodway,” a piece based on that text written by the renowned contemporary Israeli-American composer Amnon Wolman, who will join us for the afternoon.
This program is free of charge, thanks to the generosity of a number of organizations and individual donors. Child care will be available. Refreshments will be served. For more information, please call Dan Cedarbaum at 847-492-5200.
