Our next Event: A Shabbat Shmooze – WhaleTales by Stuart Goldman
Children, as well as adults, are captivated by and curious about Whales. In the mid-80s I found my meaning and purpose in the world by developing a program and offering it to students, throughout the East Coast. I performed this show in roughly 800 schools. Of course I have the skill to deliver this in age appropriate language. When performed at P'nai Or, in 2013, it was extremely well received. Folks explored there insatiable curiosity about whales during the question-and-answer period.
Ex: fact: whales must stay awake so they can breath/ fact: whales go to sleep frequently throughout the day.
Question: how is this possible? fyi: a 10 year old answered this correctly
Whaletales is a journey into the world of whales accentuated by hundreds of slides that I have taken while at sea involved in whale research. The program is captivating and deeply educational. Note: there is a slide-show that is part of this presentation. No recordings will be made during Shabbat.
Date: Shabbat afternoon November 8 Time: After lunch, after services, about 1:30ish PM.
