Rabbi Jack Shlachter, Rabbi Emeritus of the Los Alamos Jewish Center and a rabbi at HaMakom in Santa Fe, recently returned from a trip to China, where he was the visiting rabbi at the progressive congregation Kehillat Beijing.

In addition to leading High Holiday and weekly Sabbath services, Rabbi Shlachter also conducted a Chinese-style Jewish wedding and a baby-naming, and spoke on the intersection of science and Judaism. He is preparing a slide-show presentation on his trip.
