Moshe Maoz, a prominent Israeli scholar and analyst, will speak on “The Arab-Israeli Peace Process” 8 p.m. tomorrow in the Kirby Hall auditorium. Sponsored by Hillel Society and the government and law department, the talk is free and open to the public.

Shabbat (Sabbath) dinner begins 5:30 p.m. Friday at the Hillel house, 524 Clinton Terrace, featuring falafel, pizza, pasta, and salad. “The Hillel house wasn’t quite ready for last week’s Shabbat, but it will definitely be ready this Friday,” according to Hillel.

Students who will miss classes to attend High Holiday services should inform their professors as soon as possible. The following is the schedule:

Monday, Sept. 17 — Hillel is sponsoring a dinner in the faculty dining room at Marquis beginning at 5:30 p.m. to celebrate Rosh Hashanah. Departure for services will be at 7:30 p.m. from the front of Hogg Hall.

Tuesday, Sept. 18 — A van, as well as individual drivers, will leave from the front of Hogg Hall at 9:45 a.m. to transport worshippers to services. Tashlich will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the Conservative Synagogue in Easton.

Tashlich is a brief traditional service held late in the afternoon of the first day of Rosh Hashanah. During the service, one metaphorically casts away his or her sins by throwing matzoh and bread crumbs into a nearby body of water. In Easton, people meet at the synagogue and then walk to a nearby creek for the ceremony. Interested students should let any of the Hillel officers or advisors know if they need rides (either in advance or at the Rosh Hashanah dinner).

Wednesday, Sept. 26 — Yom Kippur dinner begins at 5:15 p.m. in the faculty dining room. For those who wish to attend services at the Conservative Synagogue, cars will be leaving immediately following dinner from Marquis. Conservative services start at 7:15 p.m. For those who wish to attend Reform services, cars will leave from the front of Hogg Hall at 7:30 p.m.

Thursday, Sept. 27 – Transportation will leave the front of Hogg Hall at 9:45 a.m. to attend Yom Kippur Services. A “Break the Fast” will be held 6:15 p.m. at Hillel House.
