Rabbi Donniel Hartman will be here to share his insights and perspectives on two issues that are dominating our concerns.
Israel and World Jewry- What does it mean to be part of two homes? How do Jews relate to Israel differently from other people? What are the rights and responsibilities we have with each other and how do we deal with fundamental differences in values and priorities?
Struggling with this issue has thousands of years of historic precedent but now has critical significance.Donniel brings his unique depth of insights and range of perspectives to stimulate and challenge our conventional wisdom.
Derech Eretz- How do we integrate wisdom and insights with living in the world? How do develop public etiquette that not only allows for civility but for a prioritizing of our core moral principles?Derech Eretz is not just being polite; it is about what kind of people we aspire to be. Join us.
On Friday evening, Shabbat morning and Shabbat afternoon, April 27 and 28, Rabbi Donniel Hartman will be here to explore two interconnected topics.The first is how do we American Jews relate to Israel in terms of values, religion and political roles in the world. The second is dealing with derech eretz- What kind of people do we want to be? How do we deal with primary core values in a legal system that is followed differently by different parts of the community?
