Lunch ‘n’ Learn with Rabbi and Friends

You are cordially invited…

THIS Tuesday, May 18th Noon   
  Bob Abelman, award-winning theater critic and arts columnist for the Cleveland Jewish News, will be our featured guest speaker. Read his book ahead of time OR just come to meet Bob Abelman and hear about his career in theater… and beyond. In a virtual “book club gathering,” participants are invited to discuss Abelman’s new novella ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE FRIGHT.  The book is a laugh out loud, fast-paced fictionalized memoir about one Jewish journalist’s journey across the footlights to take on an acting role in a top-tier production of “As You Like It.”  He tackles this hurdle in order to write about the experience, despite his personal battle with the Bard and having to share the stage with actors he’s panned in the past! In addition to leading a lively discussion about the book, Abelman will talk about the Cleveland theater scene, Shakespeare’s anti-Semitism, and the process of writing arts criticism.  The book is $14.95 and available in paperback and ebooks at, other online retailers, and directly from the local publisher at RSVP to or call the temple office at 216-941-8882. Join Zoom Meeting Meeting ID: 995 4616 1373Passcode: 982930Dial in: 646 876 9923
