Did you know that there are now and have been for millennia communities of Jews throughout Asia? We are going to learn about one such community, in Myanmar (until 1989, Burma), now reduced to a precious few. Several of our congregants will share their experiences traveling around this fascinating country. Also,  Aye Aye Thant, Westport resident,  native of Burma and daughter of U Thant, UN secretary general in the 1960s, will tell her story of growing up there (and subsequent move to New York).

Shabbat service before the program and Burmese desserts after!

Please RSVP to CHJ info@humanisticjews.org. Address will be given when you RSVP.
