“Ron Wolfson only recited one story when we heard him at the URJ Biennial in December 2017 – but what a story! Not a sound in the room, only a deep silence full of reverence and awe. This amazing raconteur and superb teacher will be with our Temple congregation on Friday, November 9th and Saturday, November 10th. Please come, listen, share your stories, and hear what this man knows about how to make our community even warmer, even more inclusive, and even more joyous. “His stories will make you think, make you laugh, and think that spiritual discovery is possible [Abigail Pogrebin].” Maggie Jacobs
