Our Scholar-in-Residence, Rabbi Dr. Ariel Burger will offer a wide-ranging lecture on the role of stories in Jewish life through the ages. Come and learn how Aggada (the Hebrew word for traditional storytelling) helped keep Jewish culture and values alive over millennia.

Connect to our heritage of vivid, richly told stories from Genesis through rabbinic literature through the tales of the Hasidic masters. The often-neglected, inspiring, and poetic side of Judaism, Aggada offers us hidden treasures that bring Judaism to life.
