Kenosha native rabbi to speak about Germany
June 1st, 2011
Kenosha native Rabbi Dan Selsberg of Congregation Beth Jacob in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, spent ten days in Berlin in early 2011 as a participant in a program called “Germany Close Up.”
This program is sponsored by the German government in cooperation with Berlin’s Jewish community. The purpose of the trip was to show the history of Jews in Germany and the present state of the Jewish community, 65 years after the Holocaust, and more than 20 years after German reunification.
On Tuesday, June 28, 7 p.m., at his home congregation, Beth Hillel Temple in Kenosha, Selsberg will report on his trip and discuss Germany’s status as home to the world’s fastest-growing Jewish community outside of Israel.
Selsberg received his rabbinic ordination from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in Los Angeles, following study there and at the Schechter Institute in Jerusalem. Selsberg also earned a degree in secondary education, with majors in history and political science, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has served Beth Jacob since 2006.
Admission to his talk is free. For more information, call 262-654-2716, or visit www.bethhillel.net.
