Torah Study(4)

One of the best ways to awaken our lives is by engaging in the study of Torah. Each week we study our ancient and sacred texts which always have something of relevance to our lives. More often than not, we are left with a profound teaching that we take with us into our week and allow it to settle in our souls, helping us to find more meaning, direction and purpose in our lives. We study the English translation of the Hebrew. No experience necessary. This is class is led by Rabbi Bellows. If you will be coming to this session, please call the synagogue at 847-383-5017

Tefilah (prayer) yoga will be held on most Shabbat mornings at 10:00am. This class is free for CBA members. For non-CBA members, the first class is free. Subsequent classes are $10 for non-members.

Charlotte Salomon: "Life? Or Theater?"

In the early years of World War II, Charlotte Salomon—a 23-year-old Jewish artist from Berlin—fled to the south of France where she shut herself into a hotel room and spent two years feverishly painting the history of her life. She called it "Life? or Theater?: A Play With Music," an astounding body of over 1,300 powerfully drawn and expressively colored gouache paintings conceived as an operetta on paper. Her singular creation and only major work survived her death at Auschwitz and stands as a testament to Salomon’s life and artistic vision. This exhibition of nearly 300 paintings offers a rare, first-hand opportunity to witness this amazing masterpiece. June 19-September 21, 2014.

Charlotte Salomon: "Life? Or Theater?"

In the early years of World War II, Charlotte Salomon—a 23-year-old Jewish artist from Berlin—fled to the south of France where she shut herself into a hotel room and spent two years feverishly painting the history of her life. She called it "Life? or Theater?: A Play With Music," an astounding body of over 1,300 powerfully drawn and expressively colored gouache paintings conceived as an operetta on paper. Her singular creation and only major work survived her death at Auschwitz and stands as a testament to Salomon’s life and artistic vision. This exhibition of nearly 300 paintings offers a rare, first-hand opportunity to witness this amazing masterpiece. June 19-September 21, 2014.
