In a Desert Land
Shabbat Dinner With Israeli Artist Neil Folberg

Songs, insights and scrumptious dinner. RSVP  here 

NF-portrait copy copy.jpg

A former student of the American landscape photographer  Ansel Adams, Neil Folberg is known for his color landscapes of the Middle East and black-and-white techniques that champion the wizardry of his master teacher. Born in San Francisco, Folberg became a pupil of Adams at age 17, followed by his education at the University of California at Berkeley and individualized study with landscape photographer William Garnett. By 1976, Folberg had relocated to Jerusalem, where he began producing color landscapes throughout the deserts of Israel, Egypt, and Jordan. Folberg was commissioned by Aperture to document synagogues across the world, followed by a return to black-and-white in a series of night skies among ancient ruins of the Middle East, where separate images of the landscape and burned-in skies were digitally composited (a sure nod to Adams’ techniques.)

Shabbat Italian Dinner
Boys in Today's Society 

with guest speaker Paul Golding

Songs, insights and scrumptious Italian dinner. RSVP  here 


DtvI10685370.jpgTwenty years ago as a new Big Brother and as President of the Santa Fe Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization, Paul became interested in what was happening to boys, the so called “boy crisis.” In addition to his experience with his little brother, Jacob, and editing the Santa Fe Boys Newsletter, he pursued this subject in research for his PhD in psychology and started the Santa Fe Boys Educational Foundation and the Boys at Risk series of conferences and publications.

Tonight, he will talk about the work of his Santa Fe Boys Educational Foundation, which has focused on a series of conferences and publications on the subject of “boys at risk.” He will describe how he became interested in this topic and what the term means. Paul will also talk about the foundation’s May 2019 conference at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center on the “Early Origins of Male Violence.” 

Before Santa Fe, Paul was an economist with the International Trade Commission and with the US Agency for International Development. He studied at Brown University and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University. He lived and worked in Nigeria, Costa Rica, and India and along the way learned enough Hindi to co-translate a collection of short stories about the sacred city of Varanasi, published as Tales of Banaras: The Flowing Ganges (1997).
