JUDAISM AT THE CROSSROADS: Jewish Thinkers Respond.
This is a challenging and exciting time for Judaism and the Jewish people. We are faced with issues that will determine how we as a people move forward in the 21st century. Beth Chaim Congregation has invited Jewish scholars and thinkers to enter into conversation with Rabbi Dan and respond to your questions about some of the most compelling and evocative issues that affect the present and the future of the Jewish people.
You won’t want to miss what promises to be three stimulating and thought-provoking evenings: Thursdays, October 24, November 7 and December 5, at The Sanctuary at Beth Chaim.
