Access Judaism: The Righteous Economic Vision of the Rabbis

Hosted By: Keeping It Sacred (KITS)

What would the rabbis think about capitalism, wealth, and poverty? Lending on interest? Paying workers? How might they think about the world we live in today? Come explore 2,000 year old texts and find your righteous rabbinic muse. No experience necessary. All are welcome.

10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT
