The Torah of Civic and Civil Engagement

October 19, 2018 - 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Lifelong Learning: Fridays, September 28, October 5, 12, 19, 26 and November 2 at noon

In this election season – as in most – there are many opinions about many issues and candidates. The same Jewish book – Pirkei Avot – tells us to both avoid the notice of the government AND to not stand idly by. Join Ira Wise for an exploration of both Jewish texts and current events. We will not be arguing the merits of one candidate or part over another. We will be discussing how we should conduct such conversations and remember the idea that we are all created in God’s image and that we are all Americans. Bring your Lunch!
