Rabbi Daniel GreyberThe Role of the Forgotten Mourner
With Rabbi Daniel Greyber, Beth El Synagogue

Thursday, January 9, 2014, 7:30 p.m.

What are the rules for dealing with the loss of a friend, a mentor, or a colleague? Jewish law has clearly defined roles for family members to grieve a loss, but it does not define a role for a friend in the grieving process.

Through his book, Faith Unravels: A Rabbi's Struggle With Grief and God, Rabbi Daniel Greyber discusses losing two close friends and his experience being a “forgotten mourner,” unsure how to grieve within the very tradition he had grown to love. By sharing his profound story of faith lost and regained, Rabbi Greyber’s insights will appeal to people of many faiths and to anyone coping with grief.

Iranians In Exile: Our Experience

With Roya Hakakian

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

7:30 p.m.

With over 5 million Iranian expatriates abroad or in exile since '79, the journey from Iran is full of untold stories that are very relevant to our politics and times.  From the universal experience of crafting new hybrid identities in America to confronting a serial assassination campaign against exiled opposition leaders, the Iranian exile community has a unique perspective on life in diaspora. Roya Hakakian gives voice to this experience as a Jewish-Iranian, poet, author and activist, a source for unconventional wisdom on Iran who seeks to change the foundations of American understanding on Iran, human rights and the exile community.
