Vanderbilt Education Center Presents…
The Science of History: Lecture on Tree Rings and the History They Reveal
In celebration of the Jewish New Year for trees, Tu'BShevat, Dr. Pederson will lecture on how ancient trees and timbers from human structures are used to broaden our understanding of history. From the rise and fall of the Mongol Empire to the construction of buildings and boats locally and globally, trees are the environmental historians, which reveal events long faded from human memory and historical documents; including how the tree ring cores taken from the Bush-Holley house reveal its construction history.
Sponsored by The Greenwich Historical Society, The Greenwich Tree Conservancy, The Bruce Museum, and Greenwich Reform Synagogue.
Thursday, January 24, 2013 (snow date: January 29)
Doors open at 6:30pm; lecture begins at 7:00 pm.
Admission is FREE, but reservations are suggested. Please call 203-869-6899 x10

In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Girl Scouts and as part of the Girl Scout Sabbath Celebration Weekend, GRS will be recognizing this wonderful organization this Friday, March 16 at 6:30pm at our Choir Shabbat Service.
Girl Scouts have an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout. This is also an opportunity for girls to explore other faiths. Celebrating Girl Scout Sabbath gives a Girl Scout opportunities to 1) thank places of worship for their contributions to the community of Girl Scouting, and 2) share how today's girls are discovering their personal paths to leadership through Girl Scouting.
This service is open to Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts of all denominations. Participation patches will be available to purchase for $2/each.
The service will be followed by an Oneg Shabbat, generously sponsored by Robin Edelston in honor of Girl Scout Shabbat.
March anniversaries will be given a special blessing and a champagne toast.
