Jacobo's Rainbow by David Hirshberg 

Jacobo's Rainbow is an historical literary novel set primarily in the 1960s during the convulsive period of the student protest movements and the Vietnam War. Jacobo comes from an isolated small community in New Mexico, and arrives at his university only to be swept up by the Free Speech Movement and the protests of the Vietnam war. This is a coming-of-age story set against the social upheaval of that era. It is also a tale of triumph over adversity, prejudice, lies and loss. 
Written from a Jewish perspective, it speaks to universal truths that affect us all. It can be read on three levels: The story of what it was like to have lived through and been a participant in the Free Speech Movement and the Vietnam War ('The Sixties'); A metaphor for what is going on college campuses today, in terms of the shutting down of speech and the rise of anti-Semitism; and what life is like for the 'outsider.'
Something amazing happens when women come together in sisterhood, to share their lives, to create enriching programs, to celebrate, to respond to the call to help within the temple community and beyond.

We are delighted to be in the stages of re-visioning a sisterhood that reflects the passions of our Temple Sinai women. If you’d like to know more about our work this year, we’d love to talk with you! Please contact Helane Dollinger at, to connect you with our sisterhood.
