We will explore the practical legacy of Nobel Prize winner, Holocaust survivor, author and human rights activist Elie Wiesel. Drawing on his own book, “Witness: Lessons from Elie Wiesel’s Classroom,” and especially his chapter on activism, Rabbi Ariel Burger will explore questions including: What did Elie Wiesel teach us about our role as activists? What does it mean to bear witness? How might we cultivate courage and compassion so that we can put our courage in the service of our compassion?
Ample time for conversation and shared contemplation will be included, so bring your questions.
This course will be taught by Rabbi Ariel Burger and meets weekly on Mondays, 12-1:30 p.m., from July 6 to Aug. 10.
