World in a Hula Hoop
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Sometimes nature may be right under our noses, and we don't even realize it! There can be entire tiny worlds right inside the boundaries of a hula hoop we lay on the ground. In this activity, we will explore the life happening in a very small area. We'll read a story together about small life in small spaces, and then head outside (please dress for the weather, this is a rain or shine event) with our magnifying glasses, field guides, and hula hoops to observe what we can observe. When we're done we'll come back inside to talk about what we found while enjoying a light snack. No registration is required for this free program, which is best for kids ages 6-12, with an adult in the building.

Classics in Religion
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Leslie Schwartz closes out her series on the Talmud:

Jews have been called “The People of the Book.” Our primary book, the Torah (the Five Books of Moses), is a source of inspiration and connection. It can also be intriguingly and frustratingly incomplete.

Talmudic literature is the attempt of generations of rabbis to understand and elucidate Torah. The ancient Jewish sages who composed the Talmud focused on Jewish law. However, Talmud also includes numerous short stories offered as artistic reworkings of the legal questions. A close reading of these stories offers meaningful lessons for life as well as an appreciation for the artistry of these ancient teachers.

The facilitator for these sessions is Leslie Schwartz, Ph. D. Coming from a liberal Jewish tradition, Leslie’s approach to ancient Jewish texts emphasizes her admiration of their ultimate goal— to make our own lives holy through study, questioning, awe, and gratitude.

Come explore a tapestry of rich topics with deeply spiritual threads.  Everyone in invited to attend one or many sessions.  The Classics in Religion program is sponsored by Cobblestone Springs, www.cobblestone-springs.org.

Blockbuster Film Night: A Beloved LGBT Classic
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

LGBT Pride Month continues!  “Tony Award-winning actor and playwright Harvey Fierstein re-creates his role as the unsinkable Arnold Beckoff in this film adaptation of the smash Broadway play TORCH SONG TRILOGY. A very personal story that is both funny and poignant, TORCH SONG TRILOGY chronicles a New Yorker's search for love, respect and tradition in a world that seems not especially made for him. From Arnold's hilarious steps toward domestic bliss with a reluctant school teacher, to his first truly promising love affair with a young fashion model, Arnold's greatest challenge remains his complicated relationship with his mother. But armed with a keenly developed sense of humor and oftentimes piercing wit, Arnold continues to test the commonly accepted terms of endearment--and endurance--in a universally affecting story that confirms that happiness is well worth carrying a torch for” (IMDb).  Also starring Anne Bancroft and Matthew Broderick.  2 hours; rated R.  Free and open to the public; all adults are welcome to bring their open minds and hearts.
