Rabbi Eric Gurvis will lead this year-long series in which we will engage in an examination of Jewish traditional teachings on war and peace. In today’s world, “war” and “peace” are real categories and sources of anxiety. The State of Israel exists at the threshold of a readiness for war even as it pursues the agenda of peacemaking. Diaspora Jews are implicated in these conversations by their governments’ political agendas, and by a constant and changing array of geopolitical threats. Through text study and discussion we will explore these timely and critical questions. All texts will be studied in English. No prior knowledge or experience is needed.
Thursdays, October 23, November 6, December 11, January 8, March 12, April 16, and May 14 at 12:15 p.m.
