May Conversation Club and Shabbat Dinner

Guests joined our fellows Friday, May 5th, at 7:00 PM for our May Shabbat Conversation Club – where we gather for a home-cooked meal to discuss issues that matter. During Shabbat, we take time to pause, reflect and welcome in the day of rest. We want to re-orient ourselves away from distractions and towards the things that are most important in our lives. This month, the group used an article as a jumping-off point for a discussion around the issue of assisted suicide and what our religious traditions have to say about it. This was a difficult and often painfully charged topic but those involved managed to have an honest, respectful and thoughtful discussion.
