Rabbi Joseph Prouser, spiritual leader of Temple Emanuel of North Jersey, Franklin Lakes, will explore the nexus between American constitutionalism and Jewish conventional theology when he speaks on “American Democracy in the Rich Soil of Sinai.”
Rabbi Prouser will speak at Sweet Tastes of Torah to be held on Saturday, February 2, 6:15 to 10:30 pm at Temple Emeth in Teaneck. Sweet Tastes of Torah, a community night of learning presented by the North Jersey Board of Rabbis, offers a smorgasbord of study, discussion, and fun, with 22 one-hour classes to choose from taught by members of the NJBR.
Sweet Tastes of Torah is also sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey and more than two dozen synagogues and learning projects in northern New Jersey.

The NJBR, comprised of rabbis of all streams who live or work in Bergen, North Hudson, or eastern Passaic counties, seeks to enhance the life of the North Jersey Jewish community; better understand how to use their positions to enhance the long-term spiritual and fiscal health of congregations or Jewish community organizations; and take a united stand, when appropriate, on issues confronting the Jewish community.
