Celebrate Purim with Fabrangen and TLS!

Once again, we invite you to join Fabrangen and Tikkun Leil Shabbat (TLS) for Purim. Get your costumes ready, bring a few Shalot Manot bags to swap, drinks/snacks, and tzedakah money. And, bring a noise-making box of cereal, crackers, or pasta to use as a grogger and then donate to a soup kitchen. We will have a very lively evening of fun.

The festivities are at the 15th Street Presbyterian Church on Wednesday evening March 4, 2015.  The site is near “R” Street and the closest Metro is Dupont Center.  This site is wheelchair accessible.

Max on Heschel

Max Ticktin, along with his wife Esther, has been the heart and soul of Fabrangen since arriving in Washington in 1972, a year after Fabrangen started. Max was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary in 1947 and holds a masters in Hebrew literature. For nearly 30 years, he shaped the Hillel movement at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Chicago, focusing particularly on social justice causes. He is also a pioneer in the Havurah and Jewish Renewal movement, creating the "Upstairs Minyan" at the University of Chicago.
In January 2013, Dr. Marsha Rozenblit, a noted historian and longtime Fabrangen member, sat down with Max at his home to discuss the legacy of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, a few weeks past Heschel's 40th yahrtzeit. More . . .
