Wednesday nights, 6:15pm - 7:45pm

Ever feel like those photos you took on your spring break to Ghana had greater implications than you got to discuss? How has Jewish tradition grappled with the need to assist those in need? How do we navigate the seemingly unlimited opportunities available to make a difference in today’s world? Sometimes it feels like our socially aware, postmodern beliefs are completely distinct from our Jewish identities. In this seminar, we seek to cultivate thoughtful discussion and radically honest reflection about the intersection of Judaism and social justice.
