And the Feast Goes On . . .
Jewish LearningWorks and the Oshman Family JCC are thrilled to present ongoing learning with star teachers from the Feast of Jewish Learning.
October 8th Class
Taught by Rabbi Sheldon Lewis
Where is our Strength? Bearing Arms in Jewish Thought
No people on earth has known as much conflict in its history as the Jewish people. Weapons, ever more lethal, have often been needed as they are today. Contemplating violent conflict and the place of weapons in our society and within our hearts has been an ongoing enterprise. This class will examine a series of texts that speak to our visions for the future and how they intersect with the often turbulent and dangerous reality of today.
Rabbi Sheldon Lewis, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Kol Emeth, has been active in civil and human rights causes, and has an abiding interest in reconciliation efforts in the Middle East. His book on peacemaking based on Jewish sacred texts, Torah of Reconciliation, was recently released.
