About the event
This interactive class was created by The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute and is part of a six-week course. You are welcome to attend the whole course or just the single class.
Social Justice (Tikun Olam)
In recent decades, many social causes have gained widespread popularity. Among them are: a strong commitment to individual rights and employee rights, a just but compassionate criminal justice system, and a mandate to proactively aid the disadvantaged and oppressed. How is the Jewish version of tikun olam any different from secular social activism? What are our responsibilities as Jews vis-à-vis another’s welfare, safety, property, and dignity? And a question we all struggle with: considering my limited time and resources, how do I prioritize between all these (and other) important causes?

This course explores key Jewish values that have shaped the moral compass of Western society. Focusing on areas outside the domain of the synagogue and Jewish ritual, we will explore what it means to live as a Jew in our everyday life and the Torah view of our social and ethical responsibilities.
Each lesson will contain an applicable, resonant, change-your-daily-life personal takeaway message for everyone who attends.
