Past and future speakers

Sam just informed me the following. I certainly am sorry I missed the rabbi. It sounds like it was just the kind of talk that makes this group worth going to on a quiet Sunday afternoon.

Past speaker
Sep. 14 speaker Rabbi Henri Noach (Tokyo's Jewish Community Center)
Our first meeting of the fall was a wide-ranging discussion of Judaism that started with Jewish ideas about death and ended with
deep thoughts about the purpose of life. Thanks to the energetic Rabbi Henri Noach .
next speaker
Oct. 12 speaker Dr. Lornz Poggendorf
Shinto’s role in preserving our natural environment”

3:00 International House, Roppongi

Hope I can make then next one. See you there.
