Limmud: Why Bother Being Jewish in the Twenty-First Century?

December 6, 2015 - 9:00am - 5:00pm

Humanist Rabbi Adam Chalom presents as part of the Limmud Boston Conference, a Jewish Learning Fest, at Mishkan Tefilla, Chestnut Hill.  With rising anti-Semitism in Europe and the Middle East, heart-rending conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, militant Orthodoxy fighting modernity and ongoing Jewish integration into Western Culture, who would be crazy enough to want to be Jewish? And yet we do, and we are. The truth is that being Jewish adds deep meaning to our lives.  The session will cover the transformation of Jewish life in the 20th century; the Jewish labor movement; the tragedy of the Holocaust; the shortcomings and successes of Zionism and the State of Israel.  In addition, you can sample many other workshops at this vibrant annual conference for a full day of Jewish learning!
