CANCELLED: Program with Saxe Family Scholar-in-Residence Speaker Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz

Saturday, February 29, 2020 4 Adar 5780

3:30 PM - 5:30 PMBeit Kehillah

This session surveys the historical and contemporary sources for Jewish moral action and asks a critical question: From Abraham to Abraham Joshua Heschel and beyond, what are the paradigms for embracing the eternal Jewish calling of improving the world? Judaism is among the most ancient philosophies for moral progress, of seeking out and protecting the vulnerable, sheltering the stranger, and ensuring safe harbor for the refugee all in the name of peace. Through this lens, the relevance of Judaism as a mechanism for justice becomes tangible, actionable and applicable to the manifold issues of our day.

Beth Am's scholar-in-residence weekend is made possible by the Saxe Family Scholar-in-Residence Endowment Fund.
