Gladstein Fellowship

We are excited to share that our student Rabbi Ben Freed will be in Little Rock from August 16 through August 20. This first official visit of his Gladstein Fellowship will be longer than the rest, and he would like to get to know our congregants and community. He has created a doodle poll where you can sign up for a time slot to meet with him. This can be in groups or individually, but PLEASE only sign up for a time that you’re committed to getting together, not every time you’re available. Once a slot is filled, no one else can take that time. You can meet him in your home, at the Synagogue, at a Starbucks, etc. Whatever is comfortable. The doodle link is here: https://doodle.com/poll/ucepiidp4fh6sqv9 . Simply add your name and check a time slot, and if possible, where you’d like to meet in the comment section.
If you’re not comfortable with doodle polls or computers, please call the office and our administrator, Laura, can help.
