Can Life End Death?
Wednesdays: Mar 1, 8, 15, 29, and Apr 5... 7pm-9pm at Temple Building
During this 5-week course, the Rabbi will not instruct us on how to remove a Zombie curse.

The text can be found at Amazon (use your Amazon Smile account to support TEC!) and Barnes and Noble. Some copies are also available through the Minuteman Library Network. There will be no quizzes, but there will be refreshments. The program is free, but just let us know if you plan to attend, so we can put out enough chairs
