Glatzer Memorial Weekend will take place this year March 3-5, 2017 at Temple Emunah
Every year we honor the memory of Dr. Nahum Glatzer and Mrs. Anne Glatzer, beloved and revered active members of Temple Emunah for more than twenty-five years. This year we have invited renowned scholar and author Rabbi Jonathan Slater to be our Glatzer Memorial Weekend scholar-in-residence.

He is a graduate of the Institute’s first rabbinic cohort. He is the author of A Partner in Holiness: Deepening Mindfulness, Practicing Compassion and Enriching Our Lives through the Wisdom of R. Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev’s Kedushat Levi (Jewish Lights Publishing, 2014) and Mindful Jewish Living: Compassionate Practice (Aviv Press, 2004). Jonathan received his ordination at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 1979, and served as rabbi at Beth Am in Santa Rosa, California, for 19 years. He is on the faculty of Makom: Center for Mindfulness at the JCC in Manhattan, teaching and leading mindfulness meditation.
