Summary: 

As we were looking for an event that would bring kids and adults together, a “Jewish Astronomy Night with Dad” was an appealing idea. In sunny southern California, clear nights are the rule – and we had two Men’s Club Members with amateur astronomy interests and amateur telescopes. Our plan was to give a short presentation on an upcoming meteor shower (the Leonids) and then spend an hour viewing the heavens.
