Path of the Spirit! An African American Rabbi's Spiritual Journey

Wednesday October 28, 7:30 PM at Congregation Mishkan Tefila in Chestnut Hill

While being cousin to First Lady Michelle Obama may be what catches the attention of some, it is the strength of Rabbi Funnye's ideas, the passion of his commitment to building bridges, that people find so compelling.

Read Zev Chafets's New York Times Magazine article, entitled "Obama's Rabbi", about Rabbi Funnye's unique and historic ascension to the rabbinate.
