Targum Shlishi with Special Guest at CAI @ Congregation Anshei Israel
Dec 15 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Targum Shlishi with Special Guest at CAI @ Congregation Anshei Israel | Tucson | Arizona | United States

We are taught to read the Torah Portion of the week, each week, twice: In/From the Torah text (Shnayim Mikra), and again in translation (Targum Shlishi) to ensure that we understand both the form and the function of Torah – what it teaches, and how it can be applied.

Following the Kiddush, Rotem Rapaport, one of our Shinshiniot (young Israelis doing a year of service here in Tucson on behalf of Israel through the Jewish Federation) will share her experience growing up living half a mile from Gaza on kibbutz Netiv Ha’asarah, the closest Jewish community to the Gaza border.

Following the Kiddush, six Southern Arizona firefighters recently returned from Israel will be our guests to share their experiences. While there, they worked with their Israeli partners on the evolving threat of wildland and urban firefighting. After training, they explored Israel’s history, culture and food.
