Israeli Film and Literature with Sigalit Davis
Wednesdays, 7-8:30 pm
March 7, 21; April 4, 18 ; May 2,16,30; June 6
TAA presents an exciting opportunity to enjoy and examine Israeli movies, poetry, and short stories. In eight sessions, we will analyze the diverse angles from which Israeli film and literature express the complexities of their society and culture, making sure to situate them in their unique cultural context. What bothers the Israelis? What inspires them? How have the nation's history and politics shaped the arts and the society?

Eric and Cynthia Kaplan
Cynthia and I came to TAA 12 years ago when we moved part-time to Gloucester. TAA is a "Hamish" place and the Rabbi is a big part of why we enjoy it.
I am a retired pediatrician having practiced for 40 years in Lowell and Westford. We lived in Chelmsford and raised our two daughters there. My wife Cynthia loves plants and has worked at Cavicchio Greenhouses for many years. One of our daughters is a lawyer in Massachusetts and the other owns a scene design shop for off Broadway shows in Brooklyn, NY.
I enjoy the many opportunities to engage and help out at TAA. I have joined the kitchen "crew", the Torah study class, and am a regular at Shabbat services and Sunday minyan. Having been a board member at my previous shuls for 25 years, I hope to have something to offer the TAA board of directors.
