Tamar exhibits a rare combination of the deeply spiritual and deeply practical, and it was a treat to get to know her. We look forward to collaborating with her in the future - and to witnessing her rabbinic ordination on December 12!
You can find out more about Tamar's work with MASK (Mothers/Men Against Senseless Killings) at MASK's official website, www.ontheblock.org. To donate to their Thanksgiving meal program, visit their GoFundMe page.

Film Screening & Discussion: Who Will Write Our History
Thursday, May 2 • 7:00–9:00pm
Click below to watch the trailer...
In honor of Yom HaShoah, the Jewish Federation of Northwest Indiana is pleased to host a special screening of this important documentary about a group of spiritual resisters who risked their lives so that the truth would survive, even if they did not.
In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decided to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper.
A discussion will follow, facilitated by Federation board member Carol Culberg.
Admission is FREE, but seating is limited. RSVP to (219) 301-0960 or online:
