Access Judaism: Radical Responsibility for the World

Hosted By: Keeping It Sacred (KITS)

Where did the Jewish sense of personal responsibility for Tikkun Olam/Healing The World come from? What wisdom can we glean from ancient perspectives? How can we best apply these values to our lives today? No experience necessary. All are welcome.

This is one class in a 16-class series called Access Judaism, intentionally designed by Rabbi Heather Miller. Taken together, classes feature a broad spectrum of Jewish subjects in the realm of history, rituals, culture, philosophy, law, and spirituality. These classes, which include post-class reflection questions and responses, can also count towards requirements for conversion or adult B’nai mitzvah.

SESSION 1:
10/6 Personal Inventory of Belief
