Past Sessions
Tuesday, December 19, 2023 7 Tevet 5784 - 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM - NSCI

Join Rabbi Geffen to learn what Jewish wisdom has to say about the “hot topics” of our time. These classes focus on the given week’s hot topic through the lens of traditional Jewish texts (Torah, Talmud, Post-Halachic Literature, and Commentaries). The classes do not reflect any particular political point of view, nor is their intention to implicitly or explicitly endorse any particular political party or candidate in any way. As such, you may encounter viewpoints from Jewish tradition of which you were previously unaware and/or about which you may find personally challenging. We invite you to bring your curiosity and openness to engaging with these thought-provoking ideas and texts. 

November 7 - The Jewish Ethics of War; November 28 - Artificial Intelligence; December 19 - The Death Penalty


Please note: the November 7th topic will cover the same material as Monday's Talmud Class.
