Noa Kushner - Social Justice, Mitzvah, and God Then and Now: The writing of R. Arnold Jacob Wolf z”l

Valley Beit Midrash

Rabbi Noa Kushner, Founding Rabbi at The Kitchen (www.thekitchensf.org/), presents her Valley Beit Midrash discussion "Social Justice, Mitzvah, and God Then and Now: The writing of R. Arnold Jacob Wolf z”l" before an audience at Temple Kol Ami (www.templekolami.org/) in Phoenix, AZ. ABOUT THIS LECTURE: “What we cannot believe is that God is a revolutionary. So long as we act by our lights we shall act poorly, because our insights are really self-interest and our convictions mere rationalizations.” (R. Arnold Jacob Wolf, “The Negro Revolution and Jewish Theology,” Unfinished Rabbi, p. 87). This session will explore the serious challenges raised by an essay written in 1964 that still surprises and surpasses current thinking in its radical approaches to both activism and theology.DONATE: bit.ly/1NmpbsPLEARNING MATERIALS: https://bit.ly/2CX8Ad5For more info, please visit: www.facebook.com/valleybeitmidrash/ www.facebook.com/temple.kolami.9 twitter.com/VBMTorah www.facebook.com/TheKitchensf/ www.facebook.com/RabbiShmulyYanklowitz/Music: "They Say" by WowaMusik, a public domain track from the YouTube Audio Library.

According to tradition, we look through our three primary stories of how we came to be (creation), who we are (leaving Egypt), and why (receiving Torah). Through these narratives, we can begin to see our way to awareness, responsibility and hope — as well as confront the darkness that arises and can be overcome in those same pivotal moments.DONATE: bit.ly/1NmpbsPLEARNING MATERIALS: To comeFor more info, please visit: www.facebook.com/valleybeitmidrash/ www.facebook.com/templesolelaz/ twitter.com/VBMTorah https://www.facebook.com/TheKitchensf/ www.facebook.com/RabbiShmulyYanklowitz/Music: "They Say" by WowaMusik, a public domain track from the YouTube Audio Library.
