Scholar-in-Residence: Who Learns from Whom?

Saturday, March 9, 2024 29 Adar I 5784

9:30 AM - 11:00 AMSocial Hall

Torah tells us that God walked through the Garden of Eden and parted the Reed Sea with a “strong hand and an outstretched arm.” Our Rabbis talk about God’s prayers, anger, and jealousy. Is God our role model? Or are we God’s? What happens when God learns from human role models? What does that say about the nature of God and about the nature of humanity? We will explore together some remarkable and radical texts that raise eternal questions about the struggle to be human in a less than humane world.

In lieu of our typical Torah Study, join us for this learning session with Rabbi Scheinerman.

We will have breakfast nosh at 9:30 AM, and the program will start at 10:00 AM.
