Legacy Rabbinic Scholars Learning Session: Rabbi Jonathan Greenberg

20 Jan @ 9:45 am - 2:00 pm

As we continue our 175th Anniversary season of events, please join us for learning sessions when we welcome three “children of Achduth Vesholom” who discovered a love of Judaism and learning here that later led them to become rabbis.

We’ll welcome Rabbi Jonathan Greenberg on Saturday, January 20 at 9:45 a.m. for our Shabbat service. He will give the D’var Torah about Parashat Bo. Please join us in person or via Zoom or YouTube

Please join us for a Kiddush luncheon after the service, hosted by Rabbi Greenberg’s parents, Ronnie & Norm Greenberg. Kindly RSVP by Monday, January 15 to office@templecav.org or (260) 744-4245.

After lunch, Rabbi Greenberg will discuss: “The Argument Already Won: Contemporary anti-Zionism, its historical roots, and possible implications” at 12:30 p.m. (Join us in person or via Zoom or YouTube.) We will examine the phenomenon of resurgent anti-Zionism in progressive spaces and among young American Jews. We will read and discuss some early anti-Zionist writing and look at the evolution of anti-Zionist arguments today. We will conclude with historical and contemporary answers to the most compelling arguments.

In our second program, Rabbi Rachel Greengrass will join us on Tuesday, January 30 at 7 p.m. on Zoom to discuss “Real Housewives of the Talmud.” Brains, beauty, jealousy, tantrums and heartbreak: Meet the women of the Talmud who brought the drama and intrigue over 1600 years ago. 

Our third session will be led by Rabbi Jen Gubitz on Tuesday, February 20 at 7 p.m. on Zoom with a look at Mussar. Explore the rich Jewish spiritual practice of Mussar, a 1,000-year-old tradition of self-exploration through Jewish values that supports your wellbeing and increases personal and communal connection and joy. 

Thank you to the Dr. Harry W. Salon Foundation and our 175th Anniversary donors for their support.
