Is there a pacifist tradition in Judaism? How have Jewish teachers, activists, and thinkers, responded to war in their time? How might Jewish texts and teachings help us navigate the violent world in which we live? Join Rabbi Toba Spitzer and guest teacher Larry Rosenwald, Professor of English at Wellesley College, Director of Wellesley’s Peace and Justice Studies Program and longtime pacifist and war tax resister, in an exploration of Jewish texts both ancient and modern on the topics of nonviolence, war and the pursuit of peace.
