JCC Prophets Series- Miriam, Deborah & Huldah (AP)

"And the women dancing with their timbrels”
Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron
Deborah, judge and prophetess
Huldah, the prophetess

These women, like their male counterparts, served as prophets in Israel. That is, they spoke to the people with the words of God.  Each served at a crucial juncture in the developing history of the people. Each was revered in her time. And yet, while we know, read and quote Isaiah, Ezekiel and Jeremiah, we are largely silent when it comes to Miriam, Deborah and Huldah.

Come and learn about these amazing women in this 3 week class and the part they played in turning a wandering group of shepherds into the People Israel, the Jews. 
Class Dates: Tuesday,  12/4, 12/11, & 12/18

Maimonides Society: Physicians Connecting to Each Other Despite a Culture of Isolation

Description:  In this time of technologic dependence, productivity pressures and diminished personal contact physicians across the country seem more isolated from one another.  This mirrors what is happening more generally in our society and which appears to be particularly acute among healthcare providers. This seems to be a key factor for physicians, where stress, overwork and lack of balance in life may contribute to burnout, depression, substance abuse and possibly suicide.  The instilled physician culture spawns reluctance to talk about our doubts, mistakes and stresses with each other leaving us feeling very much alone.

How can we best provide connection and support for each other?

Please join us in this discussion facilitated by Chris Mauro, PhD.

Dessert & Coffee will be served.

Generously Hosted at the Home of Drs. Elizabeth & Michael Ross

(Address will be provided after we receive your registration.)



Fill out my online form.

The Maimonides Society is an affinity group of the Jewish Federation of Raleigh-Cary comprised of doctors, residents and medical students in Wake County.

Modesty Patrols in the Ultra Orthodox Enclave of Jerusalem"
with Dr.Motti Inbari, UNC Pembroke

Because Israel's ultra Orthodox sect, Neturei Karta, rejects Zionism, the NK is embraced by Palestinians who also reject the existence of the Jewish state. From 1938-1974 the NK led  Modesty Partrols in Mea Shearim, Jerusalem, in order to strengthen the Haredi enclave and separate it from secular Jerusalem. This lecture examines the modesty campaigns and the  Neturei Karta sect.
