“Ani Ma’amin—I Believe with Perfect Faith in the Coming of the Messiah”: Contemporary Jewish Views of Perfecting the World and the Arrival of a New Age with Rabbi Benjamin Samuels and Rabbi Elyse Winick is part of the “Jewish Visions of an Ideal Society: Messianism, Utopianism, and Self-Perfection” section of The Rabbi Samuel Chiel (zt”l) Genesis Forum.

Bring your lunch and join us for these fascinating, free discussions led by some of Greater Boston’s most sought after teachers. All are welcome, no experience or Jewish background is required to enjoy this stimulating exploration.

We live in tumultuous times. In past generations, Jews have dealt with chaos by dreaming of a better future. In this year’s Genesis Forum Downtown, our sessions will look at models of idyllic dreaming from the Jewish past as a way to build our own dreams for the Jewish present.

Our teachers include rabbis, professionals, and academics, all of whom will help us draw strength and meaning from Jewish perspectives. Our lunchtime conversation will be infused with lively debate as we explore ancient and modern Jewish wisdom.

Photocopies of the texts to be studied will be supplied, and will be available online following each class, along with recordings of the discussions.

View more information, including the schedule of dates and topics. The Rabbi Samuel Chiel (zt”l) Genesis Forum is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
