Houston — In a schoolroom of Congregation Emanu-El, a Reform rabbi is leading a seminar on patrilineal descent. Down the hall, a discussion on Jewish mysticism is taking place under the direction of a Conservative rabbi. A few doors away, an Orthodox rabbi is talking about Ahavat Yisrael, love of one’s fellow Jew. Elsewhere in the synagogue, the largest Reform temple in the Houston area, two dozen other classes and meditation sessions and song-composing workshops are taking place at the same time, led by a cross-section of rabbis and teachers and political leaders.

The last time Rabbi Daniel Goldman, spiritual leader of the largest synagogue in Argentina, came to New York, he spoke at a Congregation B'nai Jeshurun shabbaton, describing the deteriorating economic situation of Argentine Jewry. That was in early December, two weeks before Argentina's economy collapsed into a black hole of unemployment and looting. This weekend Rabbi Goldman returns to B'nai Jeshurun. And, said Rabbi Marcelo Bronstein, the synagogue's Argentina-born senior rabbi, "the situation is even worse."
