Why Judaism Matters: Letters of a Liberal Rabbi to His Children and the Millennial Generation

December 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Presented in the form of letters from a rabbi to his sons, Why Judaism Matters is common sense guidance and a road map for a new generation of young men and women who find Jewish orthodoxy, tradition, issues, and beliefs impenetrable in 21st Century society. By intimately illustrating how the tenets of Judaism still apply in our modern world, Rabbi John Rosove gives heartfelt direction to the sons and daughters of reform Jews everywhere.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: A native of Los Angeles, Rabbi John L. Rosove assumed the position of Senior Rabbi of Temple Israel of Hollywood in 1988 after serving large congregations in San Francisco and Washington, D.C. At Temple Israel, he established a Reform Day School (K-6th grade), an active social justice program and revitalized synagogue and Jewish communal life in the greater Hollywood area. John is the National Chair of the Association of Reform Zionists of America (ARZA) and serves on the Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI). He writes a regular blog that appears at the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, and he and his wife, Barbara, are the parents of two sons, Daniel and David.
