Global Day of Jewish Learning

Get ready for love, in November! It’s the Global Day of Jewish Learning, and this year’s theme, believe it or not, is love, as in LOVE: Devotion, Desire and Deception. More than three hundred Jewish communities across the globe will be participating in this annual event, with a website set up for live stream access.

RRC’s very own scholar of medieval Judaism, Dr. Joel Hecker, will present one of the day’s 24 live-streamed talks, which he promises will take us into the world of Kabbalistic Kissing.

There are two good ways to join in:

Dr. Joel HeckerDr. Hecker’s talk and an entire day of workshops from around the world will be live-streamed on the Internet. We’ll follow up with details about that.

Join us on-site in Newark, Delaware, at Reconstructionist Temple Beth El at 12:45 p.m. for Dr. Hecker's talk and follow-up workshops led by rabbis from the mid-Atlantic region. The Global Day of Jewish Learning is free and open to the public, though as always, donations are accepted and appreciated.

The program begins at noon with a light lunch. The cost is $10/person.
