How To Break Out Of Tribalism and Still Be Proudly Jewish
July 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$18
Updated Lecture Topic –
It could be argued that tribalism, valuing one’s own group more than others, often leading to hurting others, has become one of the defining problems in our generation. But how does one balance that against the call by our very religion to act, in so many ways, as a tribe? How do we square what seems like self-interest with the call to make the world a perfect place? In this session, Elad will discuss these tensions, and how Judaism itself holds the answers to them.
NOTE – This event is limited to the first 20 RSVPs.
