On July 5, Chabad will kick off its summer “A Taste of Shabbos” program with guest speaker Marc Kligman. There will be a one-hour introductory Sabbath service from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. (Regular morning services begin at 10 a.m.).
The introductory service is filled with song and explanation and will be followed by a Kiddush luncheon from 12:30-2.
The event will be held at the Chabad House, 1654 Almara Circle.
Kligman was born in Philadelphia and grew up in a relatively secular family in Stamford, CT. Today, Kligman is an observant Jew, an attorney, and a baseball agent to numerous major and minor league baseball players. His notable clients include Phillies all-star catcher Carlos Ruiz of the Phillies, pitcher Rob Scahill of the Rockies, first baseman Justin Bour, pitcher Mike Zagurski of the Blue Jays among others.
Kligman sees no contradiction between being a proud, observant Jew and working in a highly competitive business of athlete representation. He will share stories and anecdotes during the sit down Kiddush luncheon
All are welcome. To ensure proper seating, reservations are appreciated. Call 235-5770.
This program is sponsored by Chabad of Kentucky and is open, free of charge, to the entire community.
