The 5 Scrolls And The Seasons Of Our Lives

The Bible’s “Scrolls” or, “Megillot,” read in synagogue at various times of the year, have also been seen as responses to the different seasons of life.  Indeed, they chart a path of healing for us as we move through the trajectory of our lives.  Come and explore the timeless messages embedded in these five ancient scrolls!

Florence Adler Swims Forever by Rachel Beanland

Atlantic City, 1934.  Every summer, Esther and Joseph Adler rent their house out to vacationers escaping to “America’s Playground” and move into the small apartment above their bakery.  Despite the cramped quarters, this is the apartment where they raised their two daughters, Fannie and Florence, and it always feels like home.  Now, Florence has returned from college, determined to spend the summer training to swim the English Channel, and Fannie, pregnant again after recently losing a baby, is on bedrest for the duration of her pregnancy.  After Joseph insists, they take in a mysterious young woman whom he recently helped emigrate from Nazi Germany, the apartment is bursting at the seams.  When tragedy strikes, Esther makes the shocking decision to hide the truth—at least until Fannie’s baby is born—and pulls the family into an elaborate web of secret-keeping and lies, bringing long-buried tensions to the surface that reveal how quickly the act.  Contact the office at 203.799.2341 to get the Zoom registration link.
