Finding Hope In A World With Unending Problems
Hosted By: Kolot Mayim Reform Temple
Rabbi Suzanne Singer believes that we need hope now, more than ever. She agrees with Jane Goodall, the foremost expert on chimpanzees, that “Hope is not a Pollyannish attitude towards life, believing that problems will magically disappear; It is a choice about actively tackling problems.” Originally inspired by Goodall’s The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times, Rabbi Singer finds hope to be a particularly Jewish value. With reference to our traditional stories as well as modern voices such as Elie Wiesel and Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, her talk will focus on the deep roots of the Jewish commitment to believing in and building for a better future.
