Purim 2016 with Kol Haverim

Purim Hamantashm

Saturday, Mar 26 2016 / Just Be Cause, (map) / 2pm –4pm

Enjoy the Kol Haverim family production of the Purim Spiel and enter in the Hamantaschen contest!  Come in costume, or come as you are.  Cheer on Esther and Mordechai and boo the nefarious Haman.  We have plenty of groggers to go around, or make one yourself at the craft table.

Hamantaschen will be judged in three categories: prettiest, most unique, and best overall. Time to pull out Bubbie’s recipe box or point your browser at epicurious.com and show off your baking prowess!

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

Free and open

Darwin Day 2016: Is It Science vs. Religion or Something Else?

Darwin Day

Saturday, Feb 13 2016

Lifelong, 119 W Court St, Ithaca, NY 14850 (map)

5:30pm – 7:00pm (Dinner)

7:00pm – 8:30pm (Program)

Historically, the theory of evolution has encountered a great deal of resistance, much of it from people professing to be deeply religious. It is easy to cast the problem as science vs. religion, but that approach unnecessarily builds a wall between religious belief and scientific thought. We will examine and discuss what is really behind the repeated conflicts between science and the societies in which operates.

Program FREE and open to all.

For Dinner and Childcare, RSVP to programs@kolhaverim.net by Feb 11. Cost: Members – free, Guests – $10/Adult, $5/Child, $20/Family.
