Brotherhood Programs for 5778/2017-2018
Brotherhood Breakfast Series
- March 11: Award-Winning Artist, Marc Podwal
Mark Podwal, the featured speaker at the Brotherhood’s March 11th breakfast (10 am), was first introduced to the American Public in 1972, through his drawings on the Op-Ed page of The New York Times. His first book, The Decline and Fall of the American Empire, a series of political drawings, was put together while he was attending NYU Medical School in the 1960’s. Since then he has published many books, including, Jerusalem Sky: Stars, Crosses and Crescents; A Sweet Year; Doctored Drawings. King Solomon and His Magic Ring, which, in collaboration with Elie Wiesel, won a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators in 1999 and You Never Know, in collaboration with Francine Prose, which won a National Jewish Book Award in 1998.
His portfolios have been acquired by the Vatican, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Library of Congress, Yad Vashem, the Bodleian Library, and the libraries at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, and Hebrew University.
Author Cynthia Ozick has given Podwal the Hebrew name Baal Kav Emet, or "Master of the True Line." As she explains in her essay Ink & Inkling, "[Podwal] joins metaphysics to physics: essence to presence; ideas to real objects...The Master of the True Line is also master of hidden meanings, of symbol and metaphor." His presentation promises to be one you do not want to miss.

About Larchmont Temple Brotherhood
The Larchmont Temple Brotherhood strives to provide meaningful services to the Larchmont Temple community. We create opportunities to build stronger congregational ties, support our clergy and lay leadership in the development of educational programs, and provide a forum for expressing Jewish men's values. We develop and sponsor community-building events that support Judaism and Jewish life through a stimulating and varied lecture series, our Yom Hashoah Candle Program, co-sponsored events with WRJ, and partnering with the School Board and the Youth Board. LTB is a member of the North American Federation of Temple Brotherhoods, a coalition of over 250 affiliated brotherhoods with 25,000 members across North America, dedicated to tikkun olam 'reparing the world" through the practice of Brotherhood.
Brotherhood invites any Temple member interested in learning more about what we do to attend a Brotherhood Board Meeting. They are usually held on the first Monday of the Month at 7:30 pm. Our first meeting will be on September 8, at 7:30 in the Axelrod Chapel. Anyone interested in slicing bagels for a breakfast or asembling boxes for Yom Hashoa Candles or helping out at a blood drive, please let us know.
To help members new to the Temple Community, we provide Brotherhood memberships free of charge for First-Year Temple Members. For more information or to get involved, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
