Unless you are completely disconnected from media you know that the first total solar eclipse in the continental United States in 38 years will occur on Monday, August 21. Omahans will get to see 98% of the total eclipse beginning at 11:38 a.m., with maximum viewing at 1:04 p.m. and partial viewing ending at 2:30 p.m.   

This unique event will be the focus of Beth Israel's guest speaker, Rabbi Dr. Joel Zeff during two talks on Shabbat, August 19.  The title of his sermon will be "The Meaning of Eclipse in Judaism."  Following kiddush, he will present "Jerusalem:  What's in a Name."  Click here for additional details.
