An epic Hungarian movie about the Holocaust. It is based on the semi- autobiographical novel "Sorstalansἁg" by Nobel prize-winner Imre Kertesz- a camp survivor who used his own boyhood as the basis for his fictional saga of young Gyuri Koves. Like many Holocaust stories, this one begins with the dramatic erosion of liberty under the Nazis, in this case in 1944 Budapest, and then draws us into deportation and concentration camps. The script was written by Kertesz himself, which puts "Fateless"among the very few films with screenplays by Nobel Prize-winning authors. The film is on a level just slightly below "Schindler's List" and "The Pianist". But thanks to Kertesz, "Fateless", the movie as well as the book, is a document that will survive, about an era that should always haunt our memories.

Caregiver Support Group
Thursday, April 24
Being a caregiver can be mentally, physically, and emotionally draining under the best of circumstances. The challenges of caring for a sick or elderly loved one can often result in caregivers ignoring their own physical and emotional health, often to the extent that they don't recognize or cope with the symptoms of stress that they are experiencing.
Temple Emanu-El's Caregiver Support Group offers a safe place to discuss the stresses and challenges of providing care for a loved one, as well as strategies for also caring for yourself.
Our Caregiver Support Group is free of charge and is open to Temple members and guests alike.
Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP (so we know how much to order) by calling561-832-0804 or toMelanie@tepb.org
Have you suffered the loss of a loved one? We can help.

Rabbi Michael Resnick
At Temple Emanu-El of Palm Beach we strive to make our congregation a Kehillah Kedoshah – a Holy Community – one dedicated to Torah (Jewish Learning), Avodah (Prayer and Spiritual Growth), and Gimilut Hasadim (Personal Kindness, Community and Social Action). Fully egalitarian, we believe that engaging in the core values of our Jewish Tradition will impact the way we live, think and act as Jews, and will serve as a catalyst for real change in us and in the world we all share.
Introduction to Judaism is designed to introduce the adult learner to the wealth and richness of Judaism as a religious culture. The approach of the course is historical and a brief survey of Jewish history will be included. Jewish theology, life cycle, yearly cycle, and worldview will be discussed in some detail. The purpose of the course is to offer a gateway into Judaism for those who are exploring their spiritual options and a starting point for Jewish adults who are looking for a comprehensive course to give them the background to continue Jewish learning.
