Universal Questions in a Jewish Key with Ariel Burger
Drawing on the inspiring example of his teacher Elie Wiesel, Rabbi Dr. Ariel Burger founded The Witness Institute, which strives to create a more compassionate and just world. As a rabbi and Jewish spiritual seeker, Ariel draws on Jewish texts and tales to open and deepen conversations with emerging leaders about universal topics like memory and moral leadership, Otherness, sacred conflict, and the competing claims of justice and compassion. How do the Witness Fellows, most of whom are not Jewish, see Jewish wisdom as a resource for their work as leaders and activists? Join Ariel and Witness Fellow Juliana Taimoorazy, an Assyrian Christian refugee and powerful leader, to explore how The Witness Institute is reframing the conversation about particular Jewish identity and universal human commitments.
