Shavuot Service and Celebration at Diamond Creek 

Sunday, June 9, 2019
10:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Shavuot service and celebration with Rabbi Goldstein, Rabbi White and CBS Music Director, Gordon Lustig

Plan to bring a picnic with beverages, folding chairs, swim suits and towels. To accommodate any changes in temperature, we suggest dressing in layers. Swimming, “schmoozing” etc. will end at 3:30 pm.

Directions to Diamond Creek:

Go north on Hwy 29 past St. Helena. Turn left on Diamond Mountain Road (one block past Dunaweal Lane). Proceed to 1500 Diamond Mountain Road, where you will see the first of many "grape arrow" signs directing you to the lake at Diamond Creek Vineyards which is farther up the road and around the hill to the right. Note: if you get to the stop sign on Hwy 29, turn around and go back to Diamond Mountain Road.

 

 


 

Soul Sister's Book Club

Monday, June 10th - 7:00 PM

The book will be The Last Watchman of Cairo by Michael David Lukas. Discussion will be led by Henni Cohen and the meeting will be at Kathleen Conrey's home.

There should be several copies in the Library. Copies are scant on Amazon. Here's a synopsis:

Joseph, a literature student at Berkeley, is the son of a Jewish mother and a Muslim father. One day, a mysterious package arrives on his doorstep, pulling him into a mesmerizing adventure to uncover the tangled history that binds the two sides of his family. For generations, the men of the al-Raqb family have served as watchmen of the storied Ibn Ezra Synagogue in Old Cairo, built at the site where the infant Moses was taken from the Nile. Joseph learns of his ancestor Ali, a Muslim orphan who nearly a thousand years earlier was entrusted as the first watchman of the synagogue and became enchanted by its legendary-perhaps magical-Ezra Scroll. The story of Joseph's family is entwined with that of the British twin sisters Agnes and Margaret, who in 1897 depart their hallowed Cambridge halls on a mission to rescue sacred texts that have begun to disappear from the synagogue.
