Rabbi’s Challenge

Rabbi’s Challenge

 

Have Knowledge, Will Travel.

Choose a time, a topic, a location and Rabbi Pearlson will meet you and raise your knowledge quotient.

Outreach in the truest sense of the word. We know that work, family…a host of obligations may prevent you from coming to us, so we will come to you!

Breaking for lunch? (If not, your mother will not be pleased.) Make it a Learning Lunch. Select a topic of interest to you and your colleagues (or congregants, or classmates, or co-workers) and Rabbi Pearlson will provide everything but the food (food for thought? yes; food for lunch? no).

Make it an evening, a Sunday, a mid-afternoon respite from your daily grind. Rabbi Pearlson is a man on a mission…to expand your knowledge and enhance your understanding.

Contact Rabbi Pearlson to pursue the possibilies.
