The Future of American Jewish Bible Translation

Since there’s no podcast this week (regular Torah readings resume after Passover NEXT Saturday, with Parshat Shmini), I thought it might be worth posting this notice for folks who are on the East Coast.  I’m chairing the afternoon session.  Click the link to register.  See you there!
