Wilshire Boulevard Temple is thrilled to welcome acclaimed actor, writer, and comedian Brett Gelman, who joins Rabbi Steve in conversation about his new book The Terrifying Realm of the Possible: Nearly True Stories.

In Gelman’s masterful short stories, you’ll meet five individuals, each navigating a uniquely strange stage of life:

•ABRAHAM AMSTERDAM (the child)

•MENDEL FREUDENBERGER (the teenager)

•JACKIE COHEN (the adult)

•IRIS BELOW (the senior)

•Z (the dead)

Books will be available for purchase.
