Korah in These Times: Conflict, Kavod, and Belonging
Dates: January 2, 16, 23, 30 from 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Teacher: Earl Schwartz
Location: St. Paul JCC
In this series we explore our current crisis in civili dialogue in light of biblical and rabbinic sources on democratic institutions, moral principles, and building and sustaining social bonds. We begin with the biblical Korah narrative, and then turn to later Jewish sources on conflict, kavod (respect), and belonging. Our intention is to deepen our understanding of forms of conflict, personal and social, and resources for meeting the challenges they present.
Cost: $40 for the series for JCC members and Hineni supporters; $60 for the series for others.
Registration: Online registration will be available at stpauljcc.org in November.
