The Transformative Power of Costumes with A.J. Jacobs
Sponsored by CRS Brotherhood & Sisterhood
For Adults | 4:00 - 5:30 PM
To celebrate Purim, New York Times bestselling author (The Year of Living Biblically) and CRS congregant, A.J. Jacobs, takes us on a rollicking journey to understand how the clothes we wear can have a surprisingly powerful effect on our happiness and outlook. He will incorporate the history of dress in Judaism, the psychology of clothing, and his own literary adventures of wearing a robe with sandals, to colonial breeches with a Tricorn hat, to a 100% plastic-free outfit (as seen in The New York Times, January 11, 2023). Costumes are welcome but not required! Reception sponsored by CRS Brotherhood & Sisterhood to follow.
