Between Us – November 2019

It’s hard to imagine that we just celebrated our 160th anniversary! For 160 years we have been living purpose-filled lives here in New Brunswick and have been touching the lives of those who live in our community. We have such a wealth of history, but we also have so much potential in what our future holds as well.

It is with great pleasure that we will bring in Rabbi Irwin Kula, as our Reitman Scholar-in-Residence to speak about what our future holds for us and all the potential we have. Rabbi Irwin Kula is Co-President of Clal – The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, a do-tank committed to making Jewish a Public Good. Rabbi Kula has worked with leaders from the Dalai Lama to Queen Noor and with organizations, foundations, and businesses in the United States and around the world to inspire people to live with greater passion, purpose, creativity and compassion. In 2008 he won the Walter Cronkite Faith and Freedom Award for his work “toward equality, liberty and a truly inter–religious community” and has been listed in Newsweek for many years as one of America’s “most influential rabbis.” He will be speaking to us on how we can reimagine Judaism for the 21st Century and how, we at AEMT, are uniquely positioned to be a part of this “re-imagination.”

It will be a tremendously powerful weekend and I hope you will be able to join us for all of it. Please find included in this bulletin details about the weekend as well as an article by Rabbi Kula meant to give you an introduction to the weekend.
