To end the beautiful Shabbat of my Bar Mitzvah, Saturday evening at P’nai Or at 7:30 join our family for a Storytelling Concert with our beloved Maggidah Devorah and Reb David at P’nai Or before they return to Ashland.
They will weave stories from Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Buddhist traditions, with true tales of interfaith adventures. Reb David says, “Through music, poetry, and stories our goal is to celebrate both the unique differences and commonalties between many faith traditions.” This funraiser for P’nai Or has a sliding-scale admission ($4-18) and a reception and book signing to follow, where the Zaslows will sell and autograph their books, and we’ll have tea and juice to enjoy, plus homemade cookies for sale.
Rabbi David Zaslow’s book, Jesus: First-Century Rabbi, was awarded the 2015 Book of the Year by the Church-Synagogue Library Association. His is also the author of other books, such as the wonderful Roots and Branches: A Sourcebook for Understanding the Jewish Roots of Christianity, the Jewishness of Jesus, Replacement Theology, and Anti-Semitism, and some fun children’s books too.
Maggidah Debra Zaslow is an acclaimed storyteller and author who travels nationwide as a performer and workshop leader. She is known for her unique blend of traditional stories with personal narrative. She is the author of Bringing Bubbe Home, A Memoir of Letting Go Through Love and Death.
