Frontiers of Jewish Thought: Jewish Futurism and Effective Altruism

Hosted By: Effective Altruism for Jews

Join David Zvi Kalman (https://www.hartman.org.il/person/david-zvi-kalman/), a scholar of Jewish law, the history of technology, and ethics, and Hillel Ehrenreich, Director of Effective Altruism for Jews (EAforJews.org) for a presentation and discussion on the frontiers of Jewish social and ethical thought.

David Zvi will be presenting on “The Case for Jewish Futurism,” exploring tensions between the current rapid rate of social and technological change with existing narratives of Jewish history, and proposing a new framework for keeping Judaism vibrant and relevant for our current moment and the long-term future.

Hillel will be presenting on connections and tensions between Jewish tradition and Effective Altruism, a social movement which aims to figure out how we can help others most effectively and put those findings into practice (https://www.effectivealtruism.org/articles/introduction-to-effective-altruism).
