392 Central Park West, #15R (on 100th between CPW and Columbus)

Come celebrate the publication of Kehilat Hadar founder Rabbi Elie Kaunfer's book, "Empowered Judaism: What Independent Minyanim Can Teach Us About Building Vibrant Jewish Communities" with Elie and the Hadar Community at a launch party on Tuesday evening, March 16 at the home of Stephanie Glenn and Gideon Katz.  Light refreshments will be served, and copies of the book will be available for purchase.
RSVP to contact@kehilathadar.org

Elie's book is a new work which examines the independent minyan movement and its relevance to prayer, community organizing, volunteer leadership, and the Jewish values that must be invested in to push American Judaism forward.   Kaunfer has become one of the leading experts in the independent minyan phenomenon, and his work captures a new vision for Jewish life which grew out of his work with independent Jewish communities throughout the country and with Mechon Hadar.  The book also features contributions from current Hadar Gabbai, Aaron Kasman.
