    RESCHEDULED: February 25 at 7:00 PM - When "The Simpsons" started thirty years ago, no one thought it would last more than six weeks. Who was going to watch a cartoon? The rest is history. In retrospect, writer/producer Mike Reiss thinks that may be the reason for the show’s success. No one cared. Reiss is the Emmy and Peabody award-winning writer and producer for "The Simpsons," and the co-author of "Springfield Confidential: Jokes, Secrets and Outright Lies from a Lifetime Writing for The Simpsons." Book Signing to follow.

  9. IMMIGRATION DAY OF LEARNING

    Community Gatherings, Galas & Trips
    An Afternoon of Learning & Commitment to the Establishment of Humane Immigration Policies - For Jews, the issue of immigration reminds of us of our history seeking refuge as a wandering and oppressed people. The most commonly repeated commandment in the entire Torah is to love the stranger because we were strangers in the land of Egypt. Jewish tradition demands that we prioritize the needs of immigrants, welcoming and helping them when we can, balanced with the needs for security and safety in our own nation.
