My first speaking trip to Utah includes nine talks at five schools, a library talk, and a synagogue talk. The backdrop of the synagogue talk is one of the most beautiful of any venue I have been to. This photo does not do it justice:
The synagogue harbors another fascinating facet; the Sundance Film Festival rents out its main hall for screenings every January. They erect a screen on the wall to the right and cinema luminaries come to watch.
Special thanks to my Brandeis friend Bari Nan Cohen Rothchild for her tireless efforts to bring me in and to Michael Greenfield at Temple Har Shalom for taking a chance on me.
