Temple Beth El’s Lunch and Learn series continues at noon July 11 for a discussion marking the 75th anniversary of the State of Israel. Like they have every year for centuries, people pause and remember the feeling tied up with the loss of the Ancient Land. Join the commemoration in person at the Schaefer Family Campus, 333 SW Fourth Ave., Boca Raton, or participate online. Call 561-391-8900.

The ministry can be a lonely and isolating journey. It doesn’t have to be.

Church United South Florida is hosting “The Backstage: A Soul Care Event” from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 24 at Spanish River Church, 2400 Yamato Road, Boca Raton.

The event is a diverse gathering of pastors and ministry leaders and features Jimmy Dodd, Mindy Caliguire and Kevin Graham Ford.

They will offer guidance on becoming healthy leaders leading healthy churches and ministries, and on moving from a mind-set of competition and isolation to one of collaboration.

Special events are planned for pastors’ wives, women in leadership, as well as for pastors who lead various age groups and are involved in board governance.

Child care will be provided for ages 6 months to 5 years. The event is free and includes lunch. For more information, call 754-900-2112.

Ice cream and Judaism
The PJ Library in South Palm Beach County, a program of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, hosts the 2023 Sweet Summer Series. Except for a Fourth of July week break, events take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Aug. 2 at participating ice cream shops.

The goal is to provide families raising Jewish children the chance to explore different synagogues in Boca Raton while celebrating Jewish values and traditions. Enjoy ice cream while listening to stories from rabbis and meeting other families. Seven rabbis from around the region agreed to participate.

Admission is free, but an RSVP is required at www.jewishboca.org/summerseries.
