Has the US enjoyed special Divine Providence—not only in its founding, but since the Civil War? In radio host Michael Medved’s fourteenth book GOD’S HAND ON AMERICA: DIVINE PROVIDENCE IN THE MODERN ERA, he recounts a dozen astounding historical events where the direction of the US was turned in a way defying coincidence. Hear him recount some of these spell-binding stories and sign his new book, 7pm Sunday evening, December 1 at Island Synagogue (8685 SE 47th Street, Mercer Island, WA). No admission charge; all proceeds go to the Island Synagogue capital campaign. www.IslandSynagogue.org.
