CEI is joining with Seton Hill for a special program “Sermon on the Mount”. SHU is bringing in renown speaker Amy Jill Levine, an orthodox Jew, who did a recent book on the Christian text “Sermon on the Mount”. CEI will be hosting two discussions of this book, led by Rabbi Lenny on Sunday, October 17th and 24th, both at 2:00 PM. Each will cover one-half of the book. The discussions will be available both at the synagogue and online with our gotomeeting link. Ms. Levine will be coming to speak about this book at Seton Hill on Sunday, November 7th at 3:00 PM. All sessions are free and open to the public. After the discussions at CEI, we will have a reception in the Social Hall. If you would like to read the book “Sermon on the Mount”, Seton Hill has lent us a number of copies.
Please contact the rabbi at email@example.com or give him a call at 724-963-0789 and we can arrange for you to borrow a copy of the book to read and how to pick it up. It is not a long book and I think you will find it engaging.

Please note: When returning forms that require payment, please make sure you WRITE A SEPARATE CHECK for each. The treasurers are not able to transfer funds between them. Since there are different treasurers, this will ensure you are credited for payment, will make the bookkeeping easier and the processing faster. The Treasurers no longer accept checks for funds outside their control. Thank you.
