Sunday Morning Speaker – Rabbi Greenbaum

TAE Sunday Morning Speaker Event

March 19, 2023 in the TAE Social Hall
9:15 – 11:15 a.m.

The New Israeli Government:  Views from Israel and Elsewhere

Our Own Alan Greenbaum, Rabbi Emeritus of TAE!

The newly-elected Israeli government is the most controversial in the 75 year history of the state.  Based on Rabbi Greenbaum’s recent visit to Israel along with his own reading, he will address these and other questions:

  • What is the feeling on the street regarding the government?
  • Who are the central figures and what are they doing/saying?
  • How did this all come about?  
  • And finally, the question that Rabbi Greenbaum’s mother always asked of matters ranging from current affairs to the L.A. Dodger pitching lineup:  Will this be good for the Jews or bad for the Jews?

Rabbi Greenbaum is always an enlightening and entertaining speaker.  Everyone in our TAE community is welcome, not just Brotherhood members.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Brotherhood President Bob Salfi ( or Herb Shukiar (
