Kol Ami — The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community
This series will be held over the course of three Sundays: January 30, February 13, and February 20.
This class will introduce the life and teachings of the Hasidic master, Rabbi Kalonymous Kalman Shapira, the “Piasechner Rebbe,” whose example inspired the Jewish population of the Warsaw Ghetto during World War 2. Our leader will be Rabbi Andrea Cohen Kiener, who translated Rabbi Shapira’s masterwork, Conscious Community, into English. Andrea Cohen-Kiener is a scholar, published author, practiced eco-activist, and the rabbi of Temple Israel Greenfield in Massachusetts.
