POSTPONED: Zionism, Satmarism, and Kahanism: Three Sides of One Coin?
March 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$18
DUE TO COVID-19 SAFETY CONCERNS, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED
ABOUT THIS LECTURE: The modern State of Israel and its centrality of so many Jews create an intermingling of religion and politics which can be polarizing and controversial. We will examine excerpts Zionist thinkers, from Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum, the Satar Rabbe, and Rabbi Meir Kahane — all of whom present opposing ways of integrating Judaism, Democracy and national security.
ABOUT THIS SPEAKER: Rabbi Shlomo Barya Nadiv Schachter, the son of the late Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi Z’L, is a musmach of Rabbi Shlomo Riskin and a certified Shochet and Menakker. Rabbi Shlomo Schachter specializes in creativity within Jewish texts, balancing Halachic rigor with Chassidic insights and philosophical examination. Rabbi Schachter was also an American Football Coach in Israel; defensive coordinator of the three time IFL champion Judean Rebels as well as the defensive line coach of the Israeli National Team. Rabbi Schachter particularly enjoys speaking on the subjects of Neo-Chassidut, Do It Yourself “DIY” Mitzvot, Football and the Torah, Organic Theology and the Halachic legacy of his father. Rabbi Schachter holds a degree in Modern Religious Thought from Oberlin College where he was a three year varsity letter winner at defensive end while still keeping Shabbos. He also studied and practiced alternative medicine including acupuncture and reflexology.
