Women of TEESD
Jan 30 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Tu B’shevat ( the 15th day of the month of Shevat), the New Year for the trees, dates back to Talmudic times. It was designated as the time of renewal of budding in the trees. It is one of four “New Years” of the Jewish calendar. It is a time to share the yield of the land with the poor. Accordingly, on Tu B’shevat, God decides how bountiful the fruits of the trees will be in the coming year.  For Kabbalists, trees were symbolic as the Tree of Life.

Today, we celebrate Tu B’shevat for the renewal of our commitment to serve and protect the trees and all of God’s creations. (Source: Haggadah from Sisterhood of Temple Bat Yahm)

The Ballerina of Auschwitz
Jan 31 @ 7:00 pm

Dr. Edith Eva Eger lives in La Jolla, CA.  Edith Eva Eger was taken to Auschwitz when she was only 16.  She was forced to dance for Dr Mengele, the man who had ordered her parents’ death. She became a clinical psychologist specializing in treating patients suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.  Dr Eger works with the US military, victims of domestic abuse, and is a motivational public speaker at schools and universities.

“The Choice: Embrace the Possible” is a powerful, moving memoir—and a practical guide to healing—written by Dr. Edith Eva Eger, an eminent psychologist whose own experiences as a Holocaust survivor help her treat patients and allow them to escape the prisons of their own minds.
