Our Yom Kippur Afternoon of Learning provides members and friends the opportunity for growth and renewal on Yom Kippur afternoon, Wednesday, October 9. 

Indecent Discussion Group with Pat Madsen

Paula Vogel’s play Indecent (at the Denver Center through October 6) explores the uses and abuses of God of Vengeance, the 1907 Yiddish play by Sholem Asch. On Asch’s stage: a brothel-keeper, an abusive father, whores, lesbian lovers kissing each other, a rabbi for whom sin could be overlooked for additional cash, all of them Jewish. On Vogel’s stage: a bold young writer willing to portray his people with all their flaws until seeing the nightmares inflicted on Eastern European Jews by WWI nearly broke him, and a country bumpkin transformed by the power of his art, then betrayed by the writer’s change of heart. While the gates of prayer are open, who should apologize to whom?

Facilitator:  Pat Madsen, a B’nai Havurah member for the better part of 30 years, has written liturgy, studied for a master’s in Judaic Studies, helped plan many JWRC/Kol Nashim Women’s Retreats, sat as a judge, practiced law, acted in local theaters, read more than is necessary, and taught at the Denver Institute for Jewish Studies.


There is no cost for the classes for members or friends of B’nai. Those age 12 and older are welcome to participate. Please register below.
