Loving one’s neighbor is easier said than done. How do we move from refraining from doing to others what is hateful to us to advocating and marching for the oppressed? In other words, how do we move from Hillel to Heschel?

Rabbi Judith Schindler—the Sklut Professor of Jewish Studies and director of the Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice at Queens University of Charlotte, N.C.—shares this teaching and more from her latest book, “Recharging Judaism.”

Services begin at 6:15 p.m., with a festive oneg to follow.
