A Wisdom Tradition
Tuesday afternoons at Whole Foods or Wednesday Evenings at Beth El
January 31 – March 29
Join Rabbi Abraham for his new class based on topics covered in Jewish Wisdom: Ethical, Spiritual, and Historical Lessons from the Great Works and Thinkers by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin. In Jewish Wisdom, Rabbi Telushkin looks at difficult questions such as: “Is it ever ok to lie?”, “When to give and when not give Tzedakah”, “Are we commanded to love our enemies” and many more. We will use Rabbi Telushkin’s book as a jumping off point to look at issues facing our family and friends in 2017. Click here to learn more and to register.
