The British Yiddish and Yankee Doodle Jews: Exploring Differences Between Two Cultural Traditions
June 8, 2017
6:00 PM


Join us for a riveting discussion on the differences between American and British Jewry with Rabbi Simon Taylor. Conversation includes light dinner and drinks on the Vilna front plaza. If inclement weather, then program will be inside. 

Rabbi Simon Taylor has been teaching at high schools around the world for the past decade. Currently, he serves as Regional Director of NER NCSY where he educates teens all across New England. As well as smicha from England and Israel, he has a teacher certification from the Israeli Ministry of Education, a BS in Liberal Studies, and even served as a reserve chaplain in the British military. After spending much time in Maimonides School for events, meetings and even just to visit my wife Leanne in the student life department, he now teaches there in a formal capacity.
