Readers’ Theater:
A Bintl Brief

Monday, May 5, 7:00 PM
Pollin Chapel

Please join us for a wonderful, theatrical Adult Education program! Watch acclaimed local actors and CBI congregants perform a staged reading of Letters from the World of our Fathers: A Bintel Brief edited by Isaac Metzker. These letters to the editor asking for advice about life in America depict a sense of the Eastern European Jewish immigrant experience.



Beneath our dome is a spiritual home, a place of community and friendship, a place to be inspired through prayer, a place for lifelong learning, and a place where every person makes a difference.
