Sunday, November 8 2009 at 1:30-3:30 p.m. Program: "Searching For Jewish Treasures"

Shimon Paskow, Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Etz Chaim in Thousand Oaks, has spent a
lifetime looking for Jewish history in books and manuscripts. He will talk on his
antiquities and show some of the artifacts, including a Hebrew Haggadah printed in
Venezia, Italy with a page of "approval >from the Inquisitor" (>from the era of the
Inquisition), a Sephardic prayer book written in Hebrew with a page in Portuguese.
It includes the names of the people who produced the book, which are as
genealogically interesting as the book itself and a scroll with a child's prayer
for its parents. Rabbi Paskow will discuss and show a variety of interesting
"Jewish Treasures".

Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. He has served as chaplain in the United
