FOOD FOR THOUGHT

MONDAY, OCTOBER 8 | 12:00 – 1:00 PM

Join us for lunch and a presentation entitled “Wrestling with Faith,” from Rabbi Hesh Epstein. Rabbi Hesh’s redemptive message and call to action of greater faith will confer how to dialogue with God when you’ve seen the worst things happen to the people you love, and how methodologies in faith help those when they suffer.

Rabbie Hesh Epstein, Rabbi of The Chabad Aleph House, holds a Doctorate of Divinity from the Central Luavitch Rabbinical Seminary in Brooklyn, NY, along with extensive training in numerous areas of Jewish law. Rabbi Hesh has dedicated his life faithfully to the Jewish community and held numerous positions of leadership in his extensive career, including his active role as the chair of development and growth for the International Jewish Learning Institute (the world’s leading Jewish adult education program).

Soup & Sandwich/Salad lunch will be available for $5 per ticket. You can reserve your ticket online, or by calling the Church Office, (803) 256-2417. All payments can be made at the door.
