Debate and Decision: Thinking About the Election with Jewish Values
Soon it will be time to choose. During this contentious and provocative national election season we debate issues and confront decisions.
Beyond candidates and political parties, an election is a time to think about different perspectives on society, the well-being of our national community, and how we demonstrate our personal and shared values through our votes. Explore these themes through the lens of Jewish tradition during this election season.
Join us and our guest teachers for four impactful learning sessions. Open to the entire community, the classes meet at a different location each week. All participants are welcome and invited to all four sessions and locations.
