Mandel Center Lunchtime Seminar: February 11, 2009

Dear Colleague,
Please join us Wednesday, February 11, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, in room 204 (the "DL Room") upstairs at the Mandel Center, for a Mandel Center lunchtime seminar entitled "Jewish Women's Prayers Are Coming Home" featuring Dr. Aliza Lavie.

Exploration of long-forgotten treasures of Jewish tradition, which reveal themselves as profoundly relevant to modern existential questioning. Jewish women's prayers, long relegated to the sidelines of history and heritage, are being restored to their proper place and becoming accessible, inspiring religious connection, communication and creativity.
