Baja Cantina

Lunch with the Rabbi

Wednesday, October 20 at noon
If you are vaccinated, please join Rabbi Greenbaum at an outdoor table on
the patio of Baja Cantina, located about a mile east of CBI, when he leads the
lunch with the rabbi discussion. This month he will lead a discussion on
“Abortion in Jewish Teaching.” With the recent change in Texas, is Roe v.
Wade threatened? Why as Jews should we be worried? What does the Torah
and the Talmud say about abortion? Come prepared to offer your thoughts.
Call the CBI office at 624-2015 to RSVP. We will order off their regular menu
so expect lunch to cost approximately $15-$20.
