Sunday Night, March 18 – Rabbi Kogan’s Visit to South Korea

On Sunday night, March 18, Hillcrest’s senior clergyman, Rabbi Manes Kogan presented a lecture and power point slide show on his March 2016 trip to South Korea. Although South Korea has a very small Jewish community, serviced by Chabad, he had been invited to teach by Korean Christians for Shalom in Jerusalem, an evangelical group that believes Jews will one day return to their homeland.

During his adventure in South Korea, Rabbi Kogan taught students at Choong Buk University who had never met a Jew before. Rabbi Kogan taught them about Moses, Jonah, and the importance of asking questions. Given the freedom to ask questions, one student asked Rabbi Kogan how he kept his yarmulke from falling off his head!
